Oro u-turn steering wobble

I have an 05 tj with 4" springs, jks control arms, jks track bars, bilstein shocks, offroadonly u-turn steering and general grabber 35s. I've had a shake in my steering wheel between 45 and 50 mph since I put the steering on last year. So far I have tried slight toe out to 1/4" toe in in small incraments, set my caster at 6 degrees, was 3 before, new wheel bearings, made sure axles were centered and squared with eachother and new tires that I have had rebalanced twice with no change in my problem, have had it at two shops and both just say they don't see anything wrong. I'm stumped, I have a new steering stabilizer too. Anyone have any suggestions? All of my suspension components are less than a year old except the springs.

A speed sensitive shimmy is nearly always nothing more than an imperfectly balanced tire.

When you have a choice, buy American.

this is the second set and i took them two separate places to rebalance... Maybe just a low quality tire? Could it be caused by an out of round Tire? wheels are also new. Running 28 psi in them.
