Steering Wheel Shimmy at 45 mph after 2" Budget Boost. Suggestions?

I have just installed a 2" BB & a 1" body lift on my 2006 TJ Rubicon. Everything is smooth except when I am between 40 - 45 mph. My steering wheel has a slight shimmy back & forth. I have not had an alignment yet. Is that my problem? Any suggestions?
Thanks.....

Do the alignment then check back if issue remains

The only adjustment that there is in the alignment is toe-in. And after you lift it, you will have too much toe-in. You can easily set it yourself with a tape measure. Just measure a common point between the front of the front tires and the rear of the front tires. Set the toe by adjusting the length of the tie rod so that you have a difference in the two measurements of 1/8".
