New jeep owner with a question (track bar)

Bought myself a 2008 Rubicon. The old owner installed a 3in Zone lift on it. The Jeep felt really lose. I installed a steering stabilizer kit and a track bar. Just took it for a test drive and what a difference! Now it feels solid! Problem is My steering wheel is now off and my traction light is coming on now and then.

I measured from the spring perch to outside of the tire and they are even on both sides. How do I get the steering wheel centered again? Is this the norm after this install or did I screw something up? lol.

Thanks for any feedback guys! Glad to be a part of the forum. Lots of mods coming soon.

It's normal after a lift.

Adjustment is in the drag link. Loosen two clamping bolts, turn the collar, then re tighten the clamping bolts.

It takes a few tries to get it perfect.

Would my DL be slightly too long cause the jeep to drive to the left ever so slightly? I got a new front axle and everything else seems great otherwise. The DL is slightly longer than my stock and I haven't adjusted it yet. Haven't gotten around to installing the steering stabilizer yet either, so the steering wheel is a little loose

If its longer the steering wheel will be turned to the right.

Only while driving at highway speeds?

This isn't meant to a smartass question, bare with me. So should I shorten my DL to center the alignment?
