I got my 3.5" lift with 35's and I also added 1.5" spacers as well. The problem I'm having is when I get above 40 ish mph my steering begins to shake (not a death wobble shake). Not knowing much about Jeeps/cars I'm confused on what I should do or what I should fix/upgrade to resolve this issue. Please let me know what I should try, Thanks everyone!

(Steering stabilizer I thought might help)

I'm a noob as well, but first things first, are you sure your bolted to spec?

Agree with the above advice. Make sure you removed the retainer clips and buffed all the rust off your hubs. Then make sure everything is torques to spec.

^^^Did you remove these retainers and buff off the rust from the hubs?
Dealership did install as I'm away at school and did not have tools to swap tires, will go to them next week when I'm back and check. Thanks, hopefully this works.

You should have everything you need to pull a wheel off in the jack kit. Tire iron and scissor jack should be all that you need... (And maybe a 2x6 or something under the jack, I don't for my 35" KO2s, but some people do)

Are the tires or wheels new as well, or were you running them before the lift? You might want to try swapping one wheel and then the other with the spare, to see if you can identify which wheel is out of balance, if you don't find any of those retaining clips left behind.

Sounds like you need to get your tires balanced.

It could also be bump steer. Most likely tire balance however.

Tire Balancing will very in price per shop and logistics.

Discount tire charged me $45.00 for 5 tires, but that was at the time of purchasing new wheels and tires.

RF Balancing will probably cost about $100 for 5, but I haven't priced it out as of current.

As for your Dealer, don't know Heck..give it a try.
