Lift Kit Suspension Trouble

My dads just got a BDS lift put on his 07 powerstroke. When he goes over bumps going 40-50 the whole front end starts shaking. It just started happening about 2 month after the lift was put on. Anyone know what the problem might be???

Does he have Dual Steering Stabilizers?

I think its called Shimmying a single or Dual Stabilizer kit should fix it. Assuming im thinking about the same thing you are.
Atleast it fixed it in our Suzuki Samurai
