How do you figure on a solid axle truck, with a one piece tie rod connecting both front tires, that the suspension height has anything to do with toe?
Lowering the back and raising the front affects frame angle. At this point the front tires become the pivot point on the truck ( when veiwed from the side) and therefore increases your caster and minimally changes your camber but the toe should remind unaffected.
I have experienced what you are talking about on my early early bronco when it still had the original "y link" steering. I would hit a bump and with this style steering the toe would change drastically which would cause death wobble. I converted it to essentially the same style steering as out trucks to cure the problem.
One thing I have learned building lifted jeeps and broncos over the years is that the steering stabilizers are just a band air for poor suspension geometry. And that the toe alignment with cause death wobble.
Some Jeeps with enough lift cannot be aligned to "specs" or they will death wobble. Too much toe in (tires point at each other in the front). / \ will cause death wobble. I prefer to align death wobble prone vehicles with the toe either dead straight or out 1/16. It's not the best for tire wear but it stops death wobble.
