Jeep Shakes at high speed

My jeep drives just fine when I am under 45mph. But if I get up to speeds of 60-70mph the entire jeep shakes. I have had the death wobble twice before, but this is different. I do not have to slow down to 15mph to stop the DW like before. Steering shakes most of the time also. I took my jeep to NTB and I just recently had some used tires put on with 90-95% tread left. They said I need an alignment and castor bar re-adjustment. I am no mechanic but if my jeep needed alignment it wouldn't go straight when I let go of the steering wheel. My jeep runs straight. Am I right on that? I think the back of my wrangler shacks also at high speeds. And of course when I slow down the steering wheel shakes hard. This isn't a violent shack to the point I have to slow down almost to a stop. Sometimes I have to keep it under 60.
Please let me know.

Could be a lot of different thing. What I would do is go get youe tires balanced, make sure the toe in alignment is correct, then do a dry steer test to see if any of the components have play.

Sounds to me like a bad tire or two. Possibly a separated belt??

Take it back to NTB ASAP
