Slight vibration 30-40

Put in a budget lift a couple weeks ago, got a slight vibration between 30-40 mph. I changed steering damper and rear u joint today at diff. Balanced my tires and did sway bar links and bushings. It's riding pretty good now. My wheels took a lot of weights. Still has the vibration though, although it's almost barely noticeable now. I checked the front driveshaft and all the joints seem OK, nothing binding up. Any suggestions?

Re: Slight vibration 30-40

Where do you feel the vibration, in the steering wheel or in the body from the jeep?

Re: Slight vibration 30-40

Did the guy from the shop where the wheels where balanced say anything about the balancing? Sometimes they donīt get the tire balanced 100%, which could create a bit of vibration.

Re: Slight vibration 30-40

I balanced them myself, I'm starting to believe maybe I have a bent rim. One of the rims seemed to be slightly while looking at the rotations on the tire balancer. It's just wierd how the vibration seems to happen under load and after I did the lift
