death wobble problem

I did a suspension lift on my 2004 wrangler sport and no matter what I do it still has severe death wobble. Has anyone had this problem?? I need help.

Hundreds of threads here on DW and shimmies/shakes.

With the limited info you provided, we are shooting in the dark with any idea or answer we provide.

Do some research... search this forum and others, understand the causes and symptoms, try to narrow your causes down a bit
Look for threads that have similarities to your situation, review for potential causes and cures that worked.

Then come back with some clarity on your situation, so others can help you.

What you are experiencing is actually pretty common. There is a sticky at the top of the TJ Tech thread that will help you out. It is long, but if followed it will be cured.

First question is did you get it aligned after the lift?
