Suspension Lift, New Member

Hello fellas,
New to the forum. Thought it was time to join and glean from the collective knowledge.
Got a situation: 2005 Wrangler SE
I installed a Rough Country 2.5" suspension lift.
I had slight death wobble before with slightly larger tires.
Now... good lord!
I replaced the track bar bushing last night (only one end can be replaced from what i can tell).
The wobble still persists. Any ideas?
From what i have read thus far my next step is replacing the track bar???
(also, i have 30" tires that are worn unevenly. I always blamed them for the wobble before the lift. they have been rotated and balanced)
ideas?

I haven't expierenced DW yet, atleast in my jeep. But from what ive read about it on the forum id start with the tires. More so because you already know that they are wore uneven.

Maybe tires need to be balanced?

Alright, I had a pro look at it. He told me the following:
Replace the track bar, Drag link and Tie Rod End.
He told me just to buy stock replacements?
Is that true? (its only a 2.5" lift)

Yes. You'll just need to adjust the track bar mount slightly. Do you have a rc one now? I really doubt there is anything wrong with them. What did he say?

its in your alignment. Ive fixed alot of DW's and everytime if its not a part that needs to be replaced its the allignment. but everytime you replace any suspension part or any part that is part of steering you need to do an allignment. and especially if you change tires. this is why when you buy new tires from an shop most will offer a free allignment. so you dont complain that it drives funny or your tires are wearing funny. my advise would be go get an allignment and when they do the alignment they will let you know if there is anything loose or needs to be replaced. so it knocks out two birds with one stone.
