Feel a shift in front end.
Hey guys and gals,

I recently installed a Teraflex 2.5" coil lift. After the install, I made sure to torque all control arm bolts to the correct ft lbs and the trackbars both front and back. After that I took it for a test drive and noticed that when i stop quickly (For example I am stopped and let my foot off the brake to get a slight roll and slam on my brake) I feel something shifting in the front end. I have been googling this issue for a couple hours now and have found no information. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would look at the upper shock bolts as they are a pita to install and may be rattling. Also, did you unbolt control arms to install the lift?

Shifting how?

Re-torque everything.

Did you re- torque everything while you jeep was on its own weight, off jack stands?

We're beyond the re-torque stage. OP must've double-posted: Need Help with DW

Yeah sorry guys, I didn't get any hits on this one, so I reposted in a different section. Thanks for the help. It ended up being the rear lower control arms that I forgot to re torque.
