NEWBIE from socal

OK I am looking for some advice. I have an 01 TJ with teraflex lift 4" 1" body lift. While driving on city streets it feels as if the body wants to roll. I have gone through the mount bolts all are tight. I dont believe this is DW as the steering feels good. I had it up in silverado canyon last weekend and didn't see the same issue while on the fire road. Also this is my first jeep and I am hooked. But I do miss my 500 HP duramax. So i might have to swap in an LBZ and an allisson LOL. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Do you have both sway bars installed and connected?

Depending on how old your shocks are, they could be shot.
Or like you said, maybe old bushings.
Or you just aren't used to being chucked around in a Jeep.

not looking for a sports car ride I like to get out in the dirt and mud. Just want the wife to be happy driving it on occasion in town. The shocks look newer, but the bushings look sad and thinking about the track bars too. I like to know before I do, this is why I ask the people that have been through all this in the past. Again thanks for any and all ideas.

If the bushings look worn, may not be a bad place to start if the shocks appear to be ok.

It could also be a quality issue with the shocks. Some brands are known to ride worse than others. Which ones do you have?
