Bad wobble

I just got my Tj back today from getting a 4 inch lift installed at 4wheel parts. Drove it around town and it was perfect till about twenty minutes ago I got on the freeway and once I hit 60 miles an hour it wobbled out of control. I pulled of and took the back roads home. Where should I start with resolving this issue?

Did you also get new tires? Check alignment.

I would start by taking it back to 4wp and telling them you have death wobble and making them fix it...

I had just got the lift installed. I still have the stock rims on 31's. The front tires are worn and the back onse were ok. They told me they did an alignment and they installed new tie rods.

did they replace your track bar, if so did they use a adjustable trac bar? if they did check the alignment center of body to center of axle, while you at double check the same above with the rear track bar, usually they will just add a bracket to relocate for proper alignment.

also did they do shocks?

Track bar, wheels balanced, alignment, or steering stabilizer. i replaced the steering stabilizer with a much larger one and it fixed the same problem on my jeep. hope this helps if they dont fix it on monday. chances are they will make a few adjustments and it will be fine. im sure its not the first 4 inch lift they installed in a jeep. good luck.
