Got a jeep, now I need some answers.

I purchased a 98 jeep wrangler about 6 months ago. It was already lifted with 33 in super swampers. Apart from the lift and bumpers it is stock Dana 35 axles etc. It was running fine for a while but now Im having problems. It has a severe wobble. I think it is in the rear because it doesn't affect my steering. It only wobbles at low speeds, around 40 MPH and will stop if I just let off the gas. I have rotated the tires to see if it would move to the front, replaced the steering stabilizer, both front hubs( both of which were worn out) and one rear axle ( pasenger side, the bearing was out and it was leaking oil). I was for sure that one of these would be a solution to my problem. The wobble is still there. Im all out of ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions? Surely there is someone out there who has had this same problem.

Please help me,

There is a whole section on this. Search "death wobble". That should answer some questions for you. Hope it helps.

Hey guys, thanks for the help. The problem actually came from my lift kit. The bolts were loose in my rear anti-sway bar bracket... The bolts would wobble and so would the jeep. I have since tightened them several times and lost one very important bolt before finally investing a couple of dollars in a small tube of thread lock. No wobble since.
