ARGGG!!! lift help please!!!

Okay. Lift is done. Now I have a noise like something is rubbing from the front end and my steering is horrible. I drove the thing without changing my pitman arm and no steeering stabilizer and it was fine. Change the pitman arm and now the thing is all over the road like a drunken sailor and my steering is off by a few degrees

I was thinking of getting an alignment to help with steering guys ever run into this?

First off, how much lift did you put on? Alignment and recentering of the wheel is pretty standard for any lift on the YJ anyway.

definately get the alignment done, cuz that lift will change things. then see how it is from there.

yeah and remember the springs hold your axle to your frame so chuck the track bar, so taht way your suspension works more independently from each other, versus the track bar holding it up....more flex!!!!!!!!!!!!

It could just be me but the steering seems very sensitive. And the jeep wants to veer to the right, not bad but noticable. The sway bar is gone, could this contribute to my steering dillema?
