Death Wobble

I just installed kevin's 2 inch budget boost, had it aligned. no new tires yet.

ran fine for the first day, today I traveled down the highway at 75mph no problem. On the way home I got what I think is DW, I didn't hit a bump it just started shakeing at around 65, I slowed down and it went away. when I sped up it came back.

Is thi DW? and what should I do next?

I was just thinking that as I was reading other threads on DW.

My front tires are worn out and I do need new ones. would the lift cause me to be more susceptable to the shakes?

Yes sir re.

Upgrade your steering stabilizer(SS) as well. Have to be careful that if you do this that the DW is fixed otherwise your SS will mask the DW until it wears out and the DW will come back again.
