rough country lift issues..

Me and a friends of mine put a 3.25 inch lift with performance 2.2 shocks.. Well my issue is they say the drag link MUST be adjusted and we adjusted it..(even though they weren't but a 16th of an inch off) Now my traction control is blinking and the brakes are acting as if I'm sliding.. Any help?

You need to make sure your steering wheel is straight when your going straight. If your steering wheel is off that will happen. You need to adjust your drag link till your steering wheel is straight. Mine did the same thing till I adjusted it.

To clarify.

The ESP is showing on the dash while the jeep is not in motion without wheels/tires? If so you may have damaged one of the sensors in the wheels during the lift install. The computer wouldn't activate the program while the jeep was stationary.

If the jeep is moving and your experiencing this, it could still be a damaged sensor but more likely the collar on the drag link (to center the steering wheel) needs adjusting. 3.25" is pretty high and can change the way the computer feels about the ESC program.

What are you toe numbers?

Yes, It will go away once your steering wheel is back to straight when you are going straight.
