4in. Lift. 33 tires just balanced today. And I replaced front u-joints. But I have a bad death wobble only at 40mph. At times. Suspect the track bar. But inspected and I have no play . Any ideas out there.

If it's true death wobble (axle racks left to right) = trac bar.

So I had the same issue. Replaced track bar bushing and bolt. Good for a bit. Ended up having week tie rod ends and castor way out. Have you had castor and toe checked? If not do it. Also check tie rods. Mine didn't shoe movement but I could twist the tie rod easily with my hand. Don't make the same mistake I did and go with stock. Upgrade to zj tie rods.
