I have been researching parts that are included with a 4" suspension lift. I have discovered there isn't any bracket on the rear trac bar to adjust for the suspension lift.PO just left it stock. My jeep rides like your sitting on the axles. I have been in friends jeeps that are lifted and they have a little give. ( I know "its a jeep thing") but the shocks are fully compressed even when its on the lift. It rides like the suspension is frozen.

Could be a couple of things. I would start by simply disconnecting the track bar, then if does not work check the torque of the shackles. They should be around 40 ft. Lbs I believe. Also check your tire pressure. I run my pressure about 28 psi. Good luck.

yeah you can get rid of the rear trac bar. mine has been off for years and it actually gives it a smoother ride and helps with flexing. just my $0.02

If it has a lift it should have come with extension brackets for the tracbars. If not then your suspension would be very stiff.

I run no trac or sway bars. No problem

if your shocks really are fully compressed then your suspension can't flex, get a decent set of shocks. if money is tight you can run ford truck shocks with a 4" lift. heres a thread that talks about it.

I agree on dumping the rear track bar, I run the front bar but I took it apart and lubed the bushings, made a big difference.

A pair of vice grips, a T-55 bit and one hour of time the track bars are gone. Much improved ride; glad I removed them.
