Bad vib in steering wheel

i recently replaced the d35 in my jeep with a ford 8.8 and now i get bad vibs in my steering wheel but the question is if my rear angle was set wrong wouldnt i get vibs through my shifter wich i dont coul it just be a bad ball joint or tie rod? the vib only comes into play at around 45 and over mph

did you remove all 4 tires and maybe replaced them in different positions? a vibe at 45 is usually tire balance, maybe an out of balance tire was out back before, and got moved up front?

how did you set your rear pinion angle?

with an sye you do not want to set it to the same thing it was, did you actually measure it, or guestimate?
