I think every jeep is different when it comes to the death wobble. I put on a BB and never really had any vibes at all. Install the lift and see what happens.

I didnt do alignment after i installed my 4" RC and didnt have death wobble... i think yesterday there was a thread about some one having death wobble with only 2" BB.. every rig is different but most of the times its either alignment or front tires.

Your tires are rubbing the fenders right?

Does it only rub when you turn sharply? If yes then check your lower control arm. The thing right above the tire right of the shock and the brake line.

I like how you can look at your rig TRIP and not even have to stick your head into the wheel well to see your springs, shocks, break lines and CA's

man you need bigger tires...

you could go with some wheel spacers that should take care of the problem. but make sure that you check you local laws about the tire sides sticking out past your fenders.

Fox that pic is not of my rig. I've got RC control arms, RC springs and RC sticker on my shocks...
I gotta take a pic of mine but i think its about the same height.

Just noticed, take a look at the control arm frame brackets..

wont the 2" spacer lift destroy stock springs? I have read tons of horror stories about the 2" BB over compressing factory springs and causing them to sag fairly quickly.

if you install the BS extensions that come with nearly all BBs you can´t overcompress the springs.

Yes it lower control arm angle. I've seen it done better where the control arm mount was completely cut off and a new taller bracket was welded.
