Did you install an adjustable track bar? If so, did you recenter?

Those are the wrong end links, they look factory.
At 3.5" of lift they should be MUCH MUCH longer.

Thanks to you both for the suggestions. I went back thru the install process n realized I skipped the step of replacing the front end links with the rear. Blue Baby Sound was exactly is thrasher as I have yet to recenter but only because I needed to find the problem this was causing first since the steering was hanging up. Again thank you so much to you both

I think the rears would also be too short. get the proper sized links for your size lift.
in the mean time be careful not to spin that sway bar. wouldn't recommend any offroading until you get the proper links. I also have 3.5' lift and my links are 9.5' long center mounting hole to center mounting hole.
