Caster and Toe degree/ Death wobble

Hey guys, new member to the fourm but not a stranger to the site. I know there are many many threads and posts related to death wobble and god knows ive read them all, but heres my situation.

I installed the Rubicon Express 3.5" Standard lift last weekend. Its a basic lift nothing special but was prepared to get parts as needed. I started getting the wobbles this week and went to 4 wheel parts to get aligned, they did the alignment the best they could without axle cams. So i bought a set and they installed them and brought the castor and toe into spec as best he could. (see image)

I still have the wobble when hitting a bump. Everything is stock except the new sway bars, springs, and shocks. I have currently on order an adjustable track bar. Im hoping this will do the trick, but while Im waiting id figured I would get some opinions.

All tie rods and bolts are tightened and in good condition. I posted the alignment report so you knowledgeable guys could opine.

When I first installed my lift I got bad DW at 30mph research how to do an alignment did it my self and it does fine at 75 80mph. Even though you took it to a shop it never hurts to double check the toe in. Also I check mine pretty much after every trail ride. It doesn't get outta line easily but it can happen. I lost the link but there's plenty out there.

good call. Ended up installing a Rubicon express track bar and rancho steering stabilizer. drives like a champ now. i fear i only band-aided the issue with the stabilizer, but now i have a stable vehicle and can replace parts without feeling under pressure.
