Front End Shimmy with Revtech lift
I have a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Hemi powered 4x4. I've had a Revtech 4 1/2" lift kit installed and have developed a noticeable shimmy at high speeds, when hitting a bump. This is not noticeable until around 65 to 70 mph. I've had the wheel alignment, particularly caster, checked twice and it is within factory specs in all settings. I've also switched wheels and tires from front to back and have had the wheels balanced, but the shimmy remains. I have now installed a skyjacker steering stabilizer set up, and while it will kill the shimmy on the first or second quiver, the truck still wants to shimmy. Any ideas? Thanks, Bill

Where did you have the lift installed? Check your bushings and shock mounts.

I'm assuming your lift came with a track bar drop bracket, but did that center your axle properly? Take a measurement on each side to see if your front axle is off center. If it is, you need an adjustable track bar. I would bet that's what your problem is, your essentially getting the beginnings of death wobble.
