Suspension Lift Kit

I recently put a 4" rough country lift kit on my truck and put 2" wheel spacers on. as i drive the truck shakes like crazy. took the wheel spacers of and it still shakes. Had the tires rebalanced and same thing. anyone else have this problem or know what is causing this?

What is the truck?
Please describe shake... Is it in the steering wheel? I had the rough country kit on my last truck and had zero issues with it. Did you get a track bar rolo bracket with it? Sway bar drop links?

yes the steering wheel shakes real bad and feels like the wheels are going to fall off. Yes I got the track bar bracket and the drop sway bar limks. I just ordered the dual steering stabilizer from rough country to see if that solves the problem and am going to have it realigned today.

Check a pivoting joints. You've got a death wobble. Steering linkage, ball joints, anything that could give play.

Is it a 250 with ttb or 350? If it's a 250 you need to check shackle and spring bushings, steering linkage, definitely need stabilizer's, make sure stuff is tight etc. TTB is tricky to get right when lifted, my truck had a very poorly installed 4 in on it when I bought and I spend about 450 bucks getting in straight then swapped my 60
