Wheel shake questiong

I cant figure this out for the life of me. 2005 wrangler I6 sport automatic

I raised the jeep 2 inches with spring spacers, put crager soft 8 wheels on it with 32 inch BFG all terrains. Then after that I got a alignment.

Ok after that the car drove perfect.

About 2-3000 miles later I went to the tire shop for them to make sure the tire wear was looking ok and and they ended up doing a wheel balance and rotation. Keep in mind I had them put the stick on wheel weights on and no clip on weights since day 1. Im anal on how stuff looks and like the look of the wheel without the weights.

Now correct me if im wrong but I would imagine you get some wheel vibration in a jeep simply because its a jeep?

So after that now I get a wheel shake that is deff not normal from like 42mph to about 50mph. Its super annoying and you can deff see the wheel shaking a little. Its not super bad but def not right.

Ok so drove like that for 1000 miles because I couldnt get back to the tire shop to get a re balance.

Just went there last week and told them the problem and there telling me its because I need to put clip on weights on to get a better balance. So I told them no and they re balanced them again with just stick on weights and I still have the same problem. Dont forget when the tires were new I didnt have any problems so im thinking something else might be wrong expecially since I did 2 diff wheel balances and it does the same shaking at the same speeds.

Its starting to really piss me off now.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Dan

You're wrong.

You're correct. Something is wrong.

Leave your tire shop with the lesson learned. Go to someone with a road force balance machine.

Next, you have something else wrong in your suspension setup like track bar related issues, or bad ball joints, or loose bushings, or worn tie rods, or bad wheel hubs allowing the out of balance tires to manifest itself into your steering wheel.

Find those problems. Never blame it on the "jeep" thing.
