Death Wobble and front end components

Hello, I have recently diagnosed my death wobble problem to being caused by a worn track bar. I will also replace my ball joints. I also plan of giving my jeep a 2 to 3 inch lift with 31 inch tires. My questions are what is a good track bar that will be compatible with a lift and reliable without breaking the bank, and also while I'm down there, is there anything else I should replace/upgrade to allow a lift? I only plan on doing very light offroading, mostly just wooded trails.

Thank you for your advice,

Do a spring lift with new shocks. You'll be more satisfied with that over a budget boost (spacer lift). At 2-3" the only other item you would need are extended sway bar links to keep the sway bars in the proper position. If you install it yourself make sure you loosen all the control arm bolts before the install and properly tighten them after. That will keep you from stressing the control arm bushings. Also get an alignment immediately afterwards.

As for a trackbar I hear good things about Metalcloak. There is also a thread in the TJ tech forum titled something like "Trackbar - does your hit or miss". Lots of info there.
