Iron Rock Offroad long arms, bad brake steer. is it common?

I have really bad brake steer after installing my 6.5 IRO critical path LA lift on my WJ I have been told by a couple people that this is the nature of their wristed radius arm design. I wanna know if anyone else has this problem with their long arms, if you fixed it and how etc, or if I should be chasing something else as the source of my brake steer... thanks all!

I had terrible brake steer after I finish my three link. Custom not a iron rock offroad setup but still a 3 link. Turned out to be a bad caliper replaced it and now it's been great for over a year. I believe that the stock 4 link was hiding the issue and the the three link bought the issue to the surface.

I believe it is a caliper after cleaning and greasing the slide pins it decreased

Mine problem was the ceramic piston was seized in the caliper effectively makeing the brakes on that side inoperable.

Mine brakes straight, no brake steer. Is your front axle centered, aligned after the lift?
