Question after my lift
 
Let me start by saying this is the first vehicle I've lifted. I have an 11 rubicon which I lifted 3 inches (zone lift) with 35 1250 r17. So... Since the lift I have some vibration in my steering wheel and tires. I'm confused because I did a new alignment, and discount tire balanced everything. Is this normal? It is happening at pretty much all speeds though seems to die off a bit on the highway. My tires are the Rocky Mountain ATs. This is probably a dumb question but I'm trying to figure out if I need another alignment check or balancing maybe. I expected more affect from the wind due to lift as well as rough roads.

On a more positive note, thanks to all of your help my death wobble is 100% gone, as is my hood flutter (zip tied). Thanks in advance!

Either balance or you're not used to luggy tires.

Just because the tires are balanced doesn't always mean they did a good job.

Also check tire pressure. My MTR's were a bit bumpy and vibrated until I dropped pressure enough that I was getting full side to side contact. Do a chalk test.
