New Rotors Now a wobble?

I changed my front rotors and brake pads yesterday. Since then I've noticed a shake in the front end at about 40 mph. I have not had a shake before the rotors were changed.I went back and checked the lugs for tightness. The jeep has 34K on it right now. Any ideas? 4wheel alignment , tires out of balance. I have 3in lift and 33in BFGs w/steelies.

Maybe you switched the front tires around=left on right? Or a weight fell off? Is this wobble while driving, or only when brakes are applied?

If rotors are not stored right they will warp. I always do a slight turn on a brake lathe before I install. Take it to a privately owned brake shop and they will turn them for pretty cheap if they are slow.

Rotate your tires and see if it go's away. Is the rotor mounted flush on the hub?

When you were installing the rotors did you rotate the tires?

Switch the tires around until you have the 2 best balanced tires in the front. That should fix it. You can also try swapping the least balanced tire with the spare. When I had nasty death wobble due to tire inbalance, I threw the spare on there and it cured it.
