My jeep is "Jacking" itself up when it's in 4 Wheel on pavement

Yeah I was confused too when I read the original title. I thought he meant binding. Man was I surprised!! What is going on with this Jeep?

That, my friend, is what is called "torque jacking", compliments of a piss poor suspension design. Notice how the front control arms are pointing almost straight down when its jacked up there. Too bad he spent so much money on that Jeep, just to get something that doesn't work.

TJs had a tendency to do that, because of their shorter control arms. JKs are much less likely to have that problem, although this video proves that with the wrong suspension geometry, they still do.
