    Hopefully it's something easy to fix, and not too expensive. Almost impossible to tell without getting under the Jeep and checking torque, play in the wheel bearings, toe, caster, etc.

    When you installed the lift, did you loosen both trackbars and all eight control arms, then tighten them to spec after the Jeep was on the ground? If not, you might just have some binding in one of your TB or CA bushings...which is usually what causes DW, down the road.

    All trackbars and control arms should be torqued to 125 ft-lbs, except front upper control arms, which should be 75.

    its not doing the death wobble it did when i first bought the jeep brand new but then after i put the lift on it it quit now its that damn traction control goes off when i hit a bump or dip or go again a curve still right or at a certain speed. A buddy of mine says he knows what it is so we are going to take a look at it tomorrow

    The adjustable track bar will only re-center your axle, not your steering. Sounds to me like you need to center your steering. If you tried that and it's not working, then something is wrong with your lift...one wheel should not be higher than the other, unless something is bent, missing, or not installed properly.

    It might help to look at the undercarriage photo in the thread below, and compare it to yours. That way maybe any odd deviations or omissions will jump out at you.

    Second photo in first post: Diagnosing Death Wobble and Fixing Non-DW Shimmies and Wobbles

    It also wouldn't hurt to read through Planman's diagnostic tips...maybe it's something simple that you've just overlooked.

    when I go around a curve the traction control light will flash and auto brake. i have a 4" lift with 33's and i have a front adjustable track bar do you think i need to adjust more. I have taken to 3 different places and I get the same specs that on the spec numbers one side is higher than the other so the steering wheel is always to the left a little bit so i adjusted the steering wheel my self and it made the alignment off and instead of the steering wheel being off a little to left it made off to the right.
