This wobble has gotten significantly worse over time, but it really only happens at low speeds. Does this sound like death wobble to y'all, or could it just be poorly balanced tires etc? How would y'all suggest fixing it? Thanks so much for the help, as I really hate that my Jeep is riding like this right now.
I had the same problem with the same lift. Then I got an alignment done and the problem was gone. Now I have a long arm and the bumps I use to feel don't exist anymore.

golferguy111 Everything was aligned, but I am wondering how good of a job they did balancing the new tires. Thanks for all the help. I will go underneath it tonight and check it all out

jrussblues The first thing I would look at are all of the rod ends. Jk's are notorious for having a well designed steering system with crappy rod ends.

kjeeper10 Could have a little bump steer going on. A adjustable trackbar will help,

Did you have a alignment done ?

legitposter I started getting wobble over hard bumps when I put wheels and tires on my wrangler. It only had 500 miles on it at the time. Your problem might just be a result of the new tires being wider and therefore contacting the road more, as well as the psi might be too high.

It's always possible a suspension component was not tightened correctly when the lift was installed.
