Recently installed the full traction 3" lift. brand new 32x11.50x15 pro comp A/T. rancho steering stabilzer. it rides great till i hit about 65 and then the front end and steering seem to really get very loose. i can feel every bump and groove in the steering wheel and it really feels unsafe, everything is tight, i already crawled under and retighted everything including the adjustable track bar. tires are balenced fine, when i hit bumps at 1-60mph its fine real tight cant feel it in the wheel, and after i pass that highway speed threshold, it just seems to go south on me. it did not do this before the lift. any help would be great because i really dont want to go on the highway the way it is.

Have you had it aligned since the lift? if not to that.
X2.....might want to have wheels re-balanced as well

X2 on the alignment. I had a problem simular to that and mine was the track bar not adjusted properly. When you have the alignment done have a thrust angle alignment done. Who ever does your alignment will say no because you can't make any adjustments to the rear axle but the point is to make sure your four wheels are tracking correctly. When mine was out of wack it felt like I was driving in strong winds all the time. But it was only evident at highway speeds. Another item is make sure your steering wheel is centered then do your alignment.

Caster issue maybe? I had a tiny bit of bumpsteer (or something) and alignment issues that were resolved with LCA cam bolts and an alignment. I also "thought" I had my t-bar tight but found that I could actually tighten it a little bit more after each daily commute for a couple of days.

A perpetual work in progress. Too much to list, not nearly enough to matter.
