94 ZJ Lift Done ....feels sloppy

I finished my IRO lift finally 3.5 f-r with adjustable rear trac bar, now that it is done it feels really sloppy... any suggestions where to start ?

I know the ride wont be like a stock zj ....is this just what I should expect from this lift....

Maybe I should quit looking for the easy answere and just climb underneath and get busy ....any suggestion would be great ....Thanks

Be more specific by what "sloppy" means. Steering, body roll, shocks, etc?

Any time you lift and put bigger tires on, it's gonna feel more 'sloppy'.
You will get more body roll. You will get more tire roll.
It will be more sloppy.
You will never get anywhere near a factory ride from a lifted Jeep.

it is wandering alot which i think is going to become an alignment issue...but it feels like the body is rolling more ...it might be that I just need to finish tweaking things a bit ...and get used to the different ride ...Problem is I have not driven the jeep all of 5 miles since I bought it ...so I might have more issues then I think in the suspension... but hey what do you expect for a $100 DOLLAR ZJ ... Bought it being told the motor was bad ...so I bought a rolled ZJ for the motor but it turned out the cat was plugged....repleaced that and she runs like a champ... and I have a backup 5.2 in the garage...I was just hoping for the easy answere ...which I know isnt there ...just hoping for ideas

Get the alignment, that might just be the issue. You will get used to the ride eventually.

Future mods: hp30, 8.8 swap, IRO's 5.5 Critcal Path Kit

You need an alignment before anything else. Your toe-in will be out of whack because of the tie rod/drag link design on the zj's. Body roll gets worse the more you lift it, just don't drive it like a race car around turns.
