GOT LIFT andWOBBLE

I know someone will just chime in and solve my misery. I have a 2006 with a 10" lift kit. I had the death wobble when i first installed the kit on the way to the alignment shop with the stock 265's on it. Picked it up afterwards with 40's and new wheels and no wobble until about 4 weeks ago and its just getting worse. So I made an adjustable trac bar and installed that. Seemed to work for a day or so and here we go again. So i installed skyjackers 4 link kit for more adjustability to no avail. new oem stabilizer. had dual skyjackers for a while now. is there a magic alignment setup i need or what.

I have a 6" with 37's and also had the death wobble. I ended up installing an expensive DR steering stabilizer kit with nitrogen charged stabilizers. The hydraulic units in the cheeper kit's from the big companies suck. They're just shocks bolted to the front axle. The high end nitrogen charge units are alway's trying to force the steering back to center which seemed to totally cure my death wobble instantly. I haven't had it happen in years. DR is now gone and replaced by a company called ICON or IKON. It's real good stuff. The kit was over $400 but totally worth it to me when it fixed my death wobble. Ford claimed the death wobble was under inflated tires but I saw whatever. Does your 10" lift also drop the radius arm pivot locations 10"?

It is a 8.5 skyjacker with 2" spacers. So the radius brackets only went 8with that's why I went and installed a four link from skyjacker to get my alignment specs back, . Are your shocks mounted on front of the axle toward each other.

They're mounted on the front of the axle. Here is what I have.

65000 - '05 - '09 Ford Super Duty Dual Steering Stabilizer Bracket Kit - ICON Vehicle Dynamics

and

37504 - ICON Series Steering Stabilizer Monotube Shock - ICON Vehicle Dynamics

It's expensive but my wobble was so bad that I had no problem spending the money on them.

My lift also started as an 8" then added a 2in spacer and it didnt wobble. but the springs were bowed towar the front of the truck so i had something made to put on the lower mount on the axle to roll the axle back forward then it stated to wobble so now i'm trying to figure out how to elimanate the wobble now.
