If 1/8" toe in didn't work, try 1/8" toe out. I had the same issue with my ZJ, and a little preloading of the tires helped.

Also, some food for thought. I am on a 3" lift, w/ 31" tires, stock suspension arms and such. I switched to the V8 ZJ steering arms. Since my toe setting was now changed, my DW came back.

Recently, I picked up a set of used, aftermarket LCA's (they are about 1/4-1/2" longer than stock), and an adjustable front track bar. I put the LCA's in and the track bar, and the DW seems to be non-existent!

Did you try lying under the vehicle to observe operational movement while someone rocked the steering wheel back and forth?

I recommended this too OP never said anything, guess he wants to keep throwing money at it. X3 again, crawl under and have someone move the steering wheel! Even if things seem tight and good, when stuff starts moving you might see things that are not supposed to move.
