tj squat?

just a simple question i hope. i have a 98 tj automatic and when i shift to drive the ass end seems to drop 2" is this normal? when im driving down the road it seems to squrille on turns . i dont feel comfortable driving it. i just orderd rear upper track bars and a rear stabalilizer bar. could it be anythig else?

My suggestion, and I'm not an expert is that your coilover may be blown. Though, you should hear some type of thunk or drag sound. Try hopping on the side step to see if it makes a noise.

Crawl under it and look at everything. Sounds like somethings broke, but I doubt its a "coilover" unless you have an exotic suspension setup.

i had the front end worked on new everything, and new shocks all around, just orderd new rear upper contrl arms and rear track bar, not installed yet, hope this will cure it. my wife wants to drive it but i feel its a handfull right now. it drives fine in a straight line but if you have to avoid a problem in the road and jerk the dam jeep seems like it would flip over. i know it has a sort wheel base and will respond different but it just dosent seem right.
