Default Please help asap! Need this problem resolved!

Ok so I just got a 5'' Rough Country lift and im running 35's. I am getting death wobbles over the smallest bumps at as low as 25 mph. The truck is borderline driveable. I ordered a dual steering stabilizer from Rough Country, do you think this will help at all? And is there anything else I can do besides the stabilizer? Thank you!

Did your kit come with anything for your track bar? That's what it sounds like to me

I once had 14.5 wide 37 tall tires on my lifted 95, front end was so solid it may as well have been welded together, but WHAT A RIDE... these were bias ply tires, they absolutely had to go, sold em on the web to some crazy young man, hope hes still alive, I named those tires my crack finders, they were positively scary, but terrific in mud, However, I shall never ever purchase another set of them again. Horrible mileage, as well, and they bounced around on corduroy, potholes and bumps, like superballs (if anyone remembers them)...

Alignment if you havent had it done yet since the install. The suspension lift changes caster/camber and whatever else.

When you installed the lift did it have new coil springs? To weak of spring rate will cause death wobble due to the heavier un sprung weight of the larger tires, Couple this with possible alignment issues and you will have a scary ride
