I just had a 2" Sping lift put on my 2003 TJ yesterday. I drove about 50 miles home from the dealer that put them on. No Problems. Today, I get out on the highway and after about 10 minutes of driving, my jeep starts wobbling and vibrating like an earthquake. I pull over, inspect everything I can. I don't see anything broken. Nor does anything feel loose. I get back on the highway and drive on to my destination with no problems. Then later in the day on my way back home, it did the same thing. I happened when I was going about 65 mph. What I don't get is that I drove on the highway for an hour yesterday with no problem, and now it's freaking out.
Any suggestions? I havn't called the dealer that put it on because they are closed on Sundays. Could it just be wheel alignment? or is something installed wrong or broken?

Call your shop that installed it. Sounds like death wobble....

It can be caused by a variety of things...unbalanced tires, worn parts, front end out of alignment. In fact, if you had it lifted and did not realign it, I'd start there. Then check for anything that's loose or worn....especially the front trackbar.

I know it's not that high but if it doesn't go away after the basics you might need a slip yoke elimantor kit

What was described above is not a driveline vibration. It's an alignment/steering/suspension problem.
