So the drag link was binding ?

Riccochet My guess is the steering linkage. Lift caused some of it to be at different angles now.

MistiC NiNja The springs may not be seated correctly, they may adjusted and go into place and creaking gone...

During my car days i once installed lowering springs upside-down and that cased the steering to creak when i'd turn the wheel.

kjeeper10 The wheel itself or linkages ?

GiantSchnauzer hi, \i just added a 2.5 lift as well and the steering is stiff, i am guessing that my drag link bushings are binding and that they didn't re-torq al the other stuff on the ground but while still on the lift.
If your squeeking is coming from that area perhaps you have the same sort of problem. Anyhows im going to find out for sure this afternoon.

Steering wheel creaks after adding 2.5" lift, ideas???

My steering wheel just started creaking anytime I turn the wheel. Doesn't matter if the Jeep is moving or if I'm sitting still and turning the wheel. The only thing that has changed is I just added a 2.5" lift. Any thoughts or ideas as to what may be the problem or if it's related to the lift?
