Please help

Ok I have been reading on this forum for a while now and i can usually find my answer via search function. But this time I am at a loss. Let me start off by letting you no I have work on all makes and models for the past 5 years as a mechanic. So I consider my self pretty tech savy until I meet the death wobble i know this is a topic covered a bunch believe me I read every post out there. Ok Now for the problem I have the death wobble now for about 5 months. I have replaced all front end suspension components Track bar, knuckles TRE, Adjustable control arms front and rear,ball joint Ect. I have had tire balanced aligned rebalanced, realigned and still have the death wobble. I have played with caster from 4.5- 7.0 and still nothing. Now let me tell you about my jeep front axel is HP 30 rear is 8.8 with 4.56 with lockers, 4inch springs up front a. 3.5 in the rear high lined, tummy tucked,1 in body lift, motor mount, front a rear adjustable control arms. Last time I went to get my tire balanced they where not out of round and didn't even need to be balanced. The alignment shop spec sheet said thrust angle correct axel is not bent and both axel are square. I really don't know what to do next..... SO I AM AT A LOSS

Unit bearings good? Hole in axle side and frame side still round for the track bar? Did you replace all steering ends?

yes every thing has been retoruqe to red neck specs, all steering end replaced. i changed my tires out and it fixed the issue for now. I drove all the way to South Padre Island last week for a fishing trip and a beach run. The jeep had no death wobble issue what so ever we will see. I off road pretty heavy i think the tires where shot from deflating so much but really not sure
