Rear axle

My tj has the 8.8 rear end. It feels lose when taking any turns. I am new to jeeping and haven't ever been in a Jeep with this upgrade so I don't know if its part of it or not done well

Should feel stable.. I would start by checking all the control arm bolts, trac bar bolts etc.. check for worn bushing etc...

I would look at the track bar bushings. I had this happen on a ZJ w/ an 8.8 rear end and put off fixing it and I ended up costing me. The rear got out of line bending up my coil springs really bad. And eventually blew out a new 35" Mickey Thompson bc it was rubbing on the bent coil.

Trac bar should be keeping rear aligned.
