Vibration after stu coils

So finally got around to getting my stu coils installed. Looks great, but getting vibration when taking off. It stops once I pick up a bit of speed or if I take off slowly it doesn’t really do it.
I got new wheels and tyres the week before the lift so shouldn’t be a balancing issue.
I got an alignment after the suspension was done but that didn’t make a difference. Alignment was just done at a local tyre place, is it worth taking it to a place that specialises in alignments for a more accurate one or would it be a waste of time?
Or is it most likely a Cv issue?

I’ve read a few posts of people getting vibrations after installing lifts but haven’t really seen any where people have solved the issue, besides removing the lift.
My Patriot is a 2008 (Australian) 4x4 CVT.

Check to make sure the axle shaft is seated all the way into the transmission.

Check for any grease leaks on the CV boots.

Check for excessive play on the front inner cv joints.

Well there doesn’t appear to be any grease around the CV boots and they don’t really seem to have excessive play.
It goes in to get a coolant leak fixed next week so will get the mechanic to have a look.
I’m thinking I might try another alignment. There’s a local shop that specialises in truck and 4wd alignments so they will probably do a better job than the local tyre place that I got mine done at.
