What do your pinion angles look like? Is the axle positioned properly?

Ok the steering stabilizer will not play a role in the front end diving. Typically that's caused by poor geometry of CA/ axle or your springs/shocks are not up to task.

Sorry I don't have an answer. But incase you were wondering, according to the internet and Jeepers around the world, everytime you call your Jeep a car a kitten dies.

Someone should correct me if I'm wrong but aren't the front springs usually stiffer (to support the weight of the engine) than the rear springs? Is it possible the springs are on backwards, front springs were put on the rear and rear springs were put on the front?

No, the rear springs are stronger than the fronts, and they are not interchangeable. Edmumds.com tested a stock 2012 4dr and it weighed in at 52/48 front/rear weight distribution. add in 4 adults, a full tank of gas, and a couple hundred pounds of gear in the back and the weight distribution quickly shifts to a rear bias.

Hisham,
Does your Jeep have more or less brake dive then before you installed the lift? What prior 4x4 vehicles have you had? The Jeep is an off road vehicle with a long travel suspension. When you brake suddenly, the front springs will compress; longer springs will have more space to compress than the stock springs. Which OME springs were installed on the front? They make a few different versions with different spring rates. You may need to go to a higher spring rate for the fronts.
