Chasing a shimmy

Lately I've started to notice a shimmy that develops between 55-65mph on the highway, but once it hits 70mph it seems to disappear entirely. I'm sitting on 2.5 inches of lift with 31's so it's nothing crazy, my only thought is that it may be driveshaft angle issues but I don't know. I'm completely stumped at this point, any ideas on what it may be?

I'd start with having the tires balanced. It's a common cause of vibes and wheel shake

Shimmy in that speed range 95% of the time is tire balance
