Default caster angle wheel wobble questions

I have been having terrible wobble been searching everywhere online and found my caster angle to be off? way off?
have 88 samurai lifted with oldmanemu springs and 1'' extended shackles.
problem has been constant through the replacing of the steering stablizer, springs, shocks, shackles, and all bushings. all of it helped the wobble except putting on the 30'' tires which i just did and now i cant go above 40 or else will wobble to death.
anyways im trying to narrow it down and found the flange faces are definitly not parallel. is caster angle the only thing that will change this to make them parallel ?
Does anyone know what size shim i would need for this particular lift?
it seems way more than 6 degrees off more like 20 but im not sure just looks that way since the transfer case flange is facing up slightly towards the firewall and the other
is facing up towards the transfer case? is the transfer case supposed to be level?
this has been a huge expensive project to mainly stop this shit from wobbling.
any advise would be awesome. im trying to order shims or something asap cuz this is my Daily Driver! just ordered a 3'' drop pitman too hope that will help!
this vibration seems to have also made my transmission mount some loose as well
i can feel the shifter shaking with the wheels.
it seems theres so many things that make this wobble i cant seem to find it.
