At the beginning of the tj technical forum there should be a sticky article on death wobble. It will walk you through what to check.

What Dare2BSquare is talking about is felt through the steering wheel. it is a jerking back and forth and after a lift is installed can be a problem. Is this what you are getting? or are you talking about a bad vibration? If you did a 4" lift and you still have a slip yoke this can cause a vibration problem. The rear drive shaft is too short and a lift changes the angle past what the U-joints and slip yoke are "comfortable" handling. What you need then (and it's advisable to get) Is a Slip Yoke Eliminator kit. This gives you a longer drive shaft and (as the name says) eliminates the slip yoke.

Hope this helps,
