Smooth Ride Back

I need a little bit of help. I have a 2011 JK with a SA 4.5 inch BDS lift with 35 inch tires. When I first installed the lift it had a smooth ride and I could not heard the road noise from the tires. Now I feel every little bump in the road and the tires are louder and louder. When I drive over a bump hits so hard that sometimes it jerks my head side to side. What could it be from and how can I fix it? How can I get that smooth ride back in the JK? Thanks

Way too much for psi. 35's should be around 25 psi.
Honesty don't know much about BDS shocks.

How many miles do you have on the tires? My wife had the same tires on her truck and the same thing happened. I was rotating them every 5000 miles after about 15,000 miles just to make it bearable. On smooth concrete like my garage, the truck would stop from the tires being cut so bad, it was like riding on railroad tracks.

The lift and tires only have about 15000 on them.

Overinflated tires or even a alignment issue will cause the tires to wear funny.
This will also cause bad handling.

How do the tires look?

The tires were good last time I saw them. It will be about 3 weeks before I return home.
