EPS kicking in on corners

Im sure this has been answered a hundred times but im new here and would like a little help.

So i got the 3.5 inch supension lift installed and tires aligned and blah blah..
Now when i take corners and slow down fast or hit little bumps while turning quickly my abs or EPS kicks in...i assume its loosing traction but i never had this problem before the lift...What can i do to fix this? Or is this just something to get used to because it freaks me out a little everytime it happens..

It's not just about traction there is a yaw sensor as well. Either disable ESP or slow down in corners. It seems that this sensor is more sensitive in Wranglers due to the higher center of gravity (more so with a lift) making it more prone to rolling.

Make sure your steering wheel is perfectly centered. Easy to adjust with 15mm wrench on the drag link turnbuckle. Also make sure your axles are centered correctly. With 3.5" of lift, you should definitely have an adjustable track bar up front and relocation brackets in rear or a new bar there as well.

x2. If the steering wheel isn't centered, the ESP "thinks" you are making evasive maneuvers on corners so it attempts to take over.
