Howdy -

Since I was 15-years-old I have wanted a Jeep and I'll be turning 50 this year.
Last March I bought an 05 Unlimited ...

Since my purchase I have added the following:
Cat-back exhaust.
Throttle Body Spacer (no biggie).
K & N filter.
Step Bars.
Heavy duty steering stabilizer
Two inch spacer lift.

I have a problem ...

First, I had a brake wobble, so, I replaced the rotors and pads ... brake wobble GONE !

2. I have a high-speed wobble that comes in at 50MPH and then gets better at 55MPH and is very minor at 60MPH. Some days it's worse then others. It seems at times the hotter the tires get it becomes worse. Also I understand the camber, caster, and toe more then likely has changed since the lift.

Should I get an alignment, replace the tires, or both.

Karl
