Default Death wobble

Well I have installed the Ready-Lift kit (2.5" in front; 1.5" in back) and completed the front end alignment and I do have the death wobble. The severity of the wobble is directly linked to the amount of power applied. If I just drive normal it is a slight vibration until about 60km/hr and then seems to go away unless you go WOT then it is a definate wobble. If you go WOT from a standstill or very low speed it will rip the steering wheel out of your hands.
Interesting how some vehicle have it and some don't. I am assuming my opptions are remove it or install the Core high angle CV joints. If anyone has installed these I'd like to know if it eliminated the problem or not.
If anyone else has other advice I'm all ears.
