Help with my 97 ZJ with death wobble

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I recently put a 3 inch lift on with 31x10.5 all terrain tires. After hitting moderate to large size holes/bumps while driving 40 mph+ the front end starts shaking uncontrollably which I presume is "Death Wobble" I've had the Stabilizer Bar replaced, the C-Track Bar replaced, and also the front end aligned and the problem is still not resolved. If anyone could help or give any advice I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you Jeep Family.

W/o knowing what you have for a lift , I will presume you are running the Original lower front control arms and point at the bushings in those .

See my thread "what 100k bushings look like"
