Good place to start, but with only a 2" lift, I'd think the problem was already there before it. Just you didn't notice it.

What year of ZJ radiator did you use? What engine size? You know, all the info on what radiator you used. I like the idea of the radiator getting sucked up out of the way. How is cooling and the overall package running?

I changed my rear break pads and put a new caliper and rotor on the left rear. I also put in new license plate lights, and one new running light. I went to change the front hubs, but broke my breaker bar trying to get the axle nut off. I bought a 3/4 breaker bar, and that broke them free, but I have to wait until tomorrow to finish the job.

Ya it drives fine when im moving I can gun it and itll take off, but I cant burnout or even get a tiny chirp from my wheels when im stopped ..., I cant launch higher then 2000 rpms, ill WOT and it goes to 2k rpms and stays. No red line. Idk how to adjust that. It sounds like something id like to do.

removing the bb didn't magically un-wear out what ever is worn out in your suspension. You will eventually get the dw back again, maybe not for awhile though. I'd say its in your best interests to find out what was causing the dw and replace it. Then slap the bb back in!
