Have a 2011 jk sport 2.5" lift spacers,shock extension, 32" tires stock and a skyjacker steering stabilizer. When I drive about 40-60 mph and hit a bump the jeep and the wheel shake so much I have to pull over to a complete stop. I was wonder what that could be. I did get the jeep alined after I put the lift in. Any ideas it's an auto with 42k

Since you have to come to a complete stop, to eliminate it, then it sounds like you have the DW, (Death Wobble).

It's normally trackbar related, and or something worn and loose.

I recommend that you go to the Technical sticky Reference on the top, click on it and then go down to the DW. There it will fill you in on the causes and the repairs needed.

Good Luck!

Yep... DW

OP please take a few minutes and watch "PlanMan's" two videos.

the thing to remember. DW does a job on the whole front end. I wouldn't drive the jeep until everything is gone over 100%.
Since the jeep is new .. I'm guessing the track bar bolts are loose. If they are, don't just torque. remove the bolts, and check the mount holes for ovaling/wear caused by the shaking. Fix if necessary or there's a good chance DW will return.

Good luck
