Death wobble

2006 tj 2.4 has 31’s and 2 inch coil pucks in front and .75 puck in the back. Recently put them in. On occasion get a slight death wobble and slightly worse recently. What causes this?

Something worn or loose in the front end.

Do a dry steer test (Google it) with a helper and check all the rod ends up front in steering, check both sides of track bar, check ball joints and unit bearings.
When was the last time you had balance and rotate?
What is your tire pressure?

Did you adjust the toe in after adding the spacers?
