Steering Wheel Wobble Only at 50-60mph

I've got a 2015 JKU with a TF performance leveling kit, 2" puck in the rear (due to bumper weight), and Rancho 9000XL shocks. Running Duratrac 35's.

My steering wheel shakes/wobbles, but only between 50 and 60 mph. Below that and above that I do not have any shake/wobble.

Originally I thought it was wheels out of balance, so brought it back to Discount Tire, they re-balanced all the wheels, and I was good for about 2 weeks. Then the wobble returned.

Any thoughts on what this could be? Lost some weights and the wheels just out of balance again, or should I look into something else.

Since this only happens in that specific 10mph range...does that give a good indication of what it might be that's causing the issue?

Thanks for any help.

That really sounds like a balance issue to me. Your Jeep is so new, I would have a hard time believing it is death wobble related, but it would be worth going through Planman's checklist just to be sure.

Thanks folks.

I was thinking it was a balance issue too, but figured I'd ask this time since it's the 2nd time it's happening, and both times it was the 50 - 60 mph range causing issues.

Could be bad ball joints too?
