Ride Quality 35in tires and 20in wheels

Hello,

I recently added a 2 inch leveling kit, 35 inch Nitto Trail Grapplers, 20in Rockstar Wheels, and a TeraFlex Stabilizer Bar to my new 2016 JK Rubicon Hard Rock.

While I understand that the ride will change a bit due to the bigger tires and wheels, my steering while is shifting significantly when I hit bumps. Itís a big difference from the stock ride. Is this normal? Would smaller tires or wheels make the ride better?

Lower control arms or geometry correction brackets will probably help. Check tire inflation too. Chances are they have been overinflated.

Thank you for your feedback. It is very much appreciated. The PSI is currently at 38. Is that too high?

WAY TOO HIGH~ Drop to 30/32 the least. Also, steering stabilizer, or geometry correction brackets can help but talk to a specialize Jeep shop to steer you in the right direction

You don't need to run a geometry bracket. A 2" spacer lift is not the same as a 2.5 coil lift which will net a little bit more depending on your jeeps weight. Is it every bump or specific bumps? I keep my tires at 35psi to attain mpg, and have added additional weight to put my RK triple rate could on a "soft" setting.

There is a great thread on this very topic that you should review. You may not have the same exact issue but it may help you rule out a few things.
