Wobble at 45MPH to 55
 
I've got a 3.5 RE Lift, had both 31 and 33" tires on and both have a wobble/shimmy at 45-55MPH (mostly feedback through the steering wheel but felt in the front in general) drives perfectly smooth otherwise. Its nothing terrible like death wobble, just annoying driving to work and around town.

I've had the alignment checked, and 2 different sets of tires so I can assume wheel weights are right. I'm at loss, could it be something like tie rod ends or steering linkage? I think I'll try to replace the steering stabilizer soon to see if that helps. Any recommendations?

i have the same problem around 51-52 mph. but the wobble isnt felt much in the steering wheel its more the front end. a couple months ago i installed new lower control arms and i had it aligned and the mechanic said he couldnt get the passengers side front wheel to line up properly because the ball joint was bad but the toe-in was only off by -1 degree. so i think thats why mine wobbles, hope this helps.

I've been running around mine for a while. Had all that checked. The death wobble thread still hasn't helped me. Had it balanced and aligned multiple times, rims checked...maybe ball joints?
