Skyjacker lift update

I bad mouthed them two weeks ago becuase of the religious stuff they put in their kit, but I have to say that I do like the kit. The ride is a huge improvement over what I had before. When I bought the jeep it had some sort of rigged up lift, so I don't know what a stock yj is supposed to ride like so I can't compare it to that.

One thing I noticed though is that there is a little bit of oversteer/understeer. Is this common to lifted vehicles? Is it an alignment issue?

My Ride: 1990 YJ, 4.2, 5 speed, msd ignition, TFI Cap, 4" skyjacker lift, 1/2" shackles, nutter bypass, bestop seats, herculined floor, Flowmaster, Oversized cat, Xterrains on Rock Crawlers

An alignment could help your problems. It is usually recomemded after a lift of 3.5 or more. Did you install a dropped pitman arm. If so, then the steering would probably need an alignment. If you didn't, then I would recommend it. Skyjacker makes them too if you didn't get one.
