Re: front lower coil spring mounts

Before I replaced coil springs, (old man emu heavy load whick ended up giving 3" lift) I had no front end shake.
After, i do.
I have replaced most of the front suspension and steering components:
Control arms upper and lower
Tie rod ends
Spring isolators
Track bar.
Steering damper/stabilizer (oem damper)

Steering gear was replace 1 year ago.
Front brakes ( calipers, rotors, pads ) all new

Ball joints inspected and tight.

I still have shake.
I am going to try and replace steering damper with heavier one, and have alignment done.
But if that doesn't work, i am left with one conclusion...
I need to either upgrade control arms all around or go back to stock ride height.
I am disappointed.
Any thoughts??

So, i have had to put front end wobble issue on the back burner. Just too busy at work.
Also bought a new daily drive that will go to my wife once i get shreck squared away..
Any way.
I was wondering if the 3" lift provided by ome coil springs was enought to warrent a drop pitman arm off of the steering box.

Could anyone reply to that??
