Question Jeep Lean...driving me nuts!

I have recently hooked my jeep (2001 TJ 4.0L) up with a RC 4"-lift with 35's. Any how before the lift the Jeep had somewhat slick tires on an leaned to the passengers side between 1/2 an inch and 3/4 of an inch. After reading about spring sag I assumed that was it... however I was wrong...since the new spring an lift did not level it out. I measured the distance from frame to the ground (in the middle of the frame) Then I got worried and thought well maybe it was in a wreck so I checked the CarFax history report and called the past owner both whom said the Jeep had never been wrecked. I seem to have an issue I can't figure out any ideas? I have heard it could be the rear o front swaybar sticking causing the Jeep to lean. I have tried to put the plastic/rubber spring boosters in the passenger springs to level it out but it only worked to bring it up a 1/4 of an inch. When I googled the problem I saw in another Jeep forum someone said they used JKS Quiker Discos to fix a similar problem...Please Advise. Sorry such a long first post.

Did you do this on a flat surface, you being in Arkansas I know thats tough to do seeing as how the animals tend to have longer legs on the downhill sides

You should already have adjustable disconnects at that height, disconnect the sway bars and bounce on the jeep a few times then measure but measure from the center of the wheel hubs to the edge of the fender flares before and after you disconnect, then bounce it a few times, see if it settles flat.
If you go to the jks site, under instructions for the jks disconnects there will be a couple of pics of what the sway bar angle on the front is supposed to look like.
I know this may sound kind of weird but this tilt you feel, sure your seat base is not broken ? I know the drivers side seat on one of my 97's is shot and I feel my hips being cocked towards the center console and I'm going to swap seats till I can get the money for a better set.
