It bolts up the same as the stock set up and is much stronger.

This! ^^^^^ it may not help what you're experiencing, but it's a great upgrade, and you will have all new parts that are stronger than stock, so if you still have the issues you're experiencing you can at least know it's not worn out tie rod ends.

kjeeper10 Bigger tires are harder to balance I believe. Did the shop do a normal balance? I had a slight wobble at first that went away when I switched the tires from front to back. Also look into the Hunter road force balancing, it simulates the load of the vehicle on the tire while balancing.

Steering issue, not death wobble

Just finished a 4" lift on a 05 X. Finished it all up went and had it lined up goes great with no death wobble. I am experencing a steering wheel wobble when going around turns but it doesn't turn into death wobble. i had the tires balanced (33x12.5 15)'s Is this normal for the lift and tire size? Skyjacker lift with adj track bar and dampener installed.

Thnaks, Don
