1999 Jeep TJ U-Joints

I'm experiencing a little vibration in the steering wheel but not the death wobble. Could it be the u-joints? What are some good u-joints to buy? I have an old school Rough Country 4" lift kit as well if it matters. I have no adjustable upper or lower control arms front or rear and no adjustable track bar. What do I need to buy? Please help, thank you so much!

While u-joints can cause DW, they wouldn't be near the top of my list. You need to do dry steering test. If you do need u-joints, go Spicer. Honestly with 4" of lift and no adjustable anything (and I'm wondering whether you have SYE/double cardan shaft) sounds like you have a lot of things to work on.

I definitely don't have a SYE either. The jeep drives great though, but I know it could be better. I just recently got it and the only thing I have done so far is an aftermarket stabilizer shock. What are your thoughts as to a better set up for my lift? Where would you begin if you were in my shoes? I'm running 33" tires, Dana 30 in the front, Dana 35 in the rear and re-geared to 4.88. Unfortunately I only have the 2.5L Jeep TJ. Thank you!

Tires fully balanced and full allignment! I crawled underneath today and noticed that I am still running on stock front and rear upper control arms. The only thing I have is RC fixed front and rear lower control arms.
