Re: Death Wobble after lift

More information:
I aligned the vehicle by tape measure. This isn't the first time I've done it, and my SAS'd S10 and the wife's 4" lifted ZJ both are able to roll out at 70MPH without issue. (granted the SAS'd S10 has a leaf front suspension, but the point is my alignment and balance is good).

BTW- wheel balance- wheels are balanced with a combination of a static balance job (weights taped to the inside of the rim to do the heavy lifting part of the balance job), and use of Centramatic balancers (to put a fine polish on the balance, actively as the wheel rolls down the highway). I've never had a problem with this method, even using just the centramtics up to a 33" tire.
