Hey yall, now I haven't really navigated thru this entire forum yet, so idk if this is a question that has already been answered. I have an issue I'm looking at getting some input on a possible resolve. When driving my jeep at 60mph or less it handles great (for a lifted jeep anyway) but once I hit anything over, especially 70mph, it feels like I'm fighting 80mph wind the whole time. It just wanders in the lane like crazy. The wheel itself is tight and really touchy, but one small movement and it wants to shoot across the lane. My next door neighbor actually has a lifted jeep and told me to check the sway bar linkage as a big possibility. So I did, here's where I need input: It seems like when the lift was put on, they put the frame spacer in perfect, but now the sway bar linkage is no longer straight up and down but at an angle and putting stress on the bolt. Could this be the issue?

You need some longer links to keep your sway bar as parallel to the ground as possible. either buy new rear links and move your old ones to the front or just buy some quick disco's for the front
Thanks man, I also saw some links that were almost like an 'S' shape that may be a little better for fitment with the lift

May want to look into adjustable lower control arms or control arm drop brackets to correct your caster. This can also cause "flightyness"...but yeah, you definitely need longer links.
