Shocks will help mask the problem but won't correct it.
Wow , where to start?
The 3 " body lift is a tough one . We never recommend going over 1" on the body.
With 3" you run into a bunch of issues . Your going to need to extend ( lengthen ) your steering column, If you haven't already. Shifters, break and fuel lines, and a mi-rad of other things. BAD idea....
The Spoa if done right is a GOOD idea.
But require more mods than most people realize.
First , you must never rotate your front axle to try to soften the pinion angle.
This will throw your caster angle off and cause your Zuke to wander all over the place.
( Caster needs to be 3 - 5 deg. to the negative)
You must get your steering geometry set back to parallel. A full high steer kit is the only sure way to do this with a SPOA.
Without the high steer kit you will have bump steer.
A "Z" link won't solve bump steer....Sory...
Brake lines need extending, A long travel shock kit is a good investment, a track bar is a necessity, if your going to wheel it, drive line spacers will need to be installed.
Now to death wobble: If everything was done correctly when the lift was done ,
check your bushings, tire balance and condition, alignment, tire air pressure, and king pin bearings. And make sure that your pitman arm is not loose......Boxcar...
