new lift problems

i recently put a 3inch lift on a 95 wrangler it also has 1.25 shackle lift on it. when i drive it down the road it floats all over the road, especially when i hit a little bump. i know for sure that every thing is tight on the new kit. Does anyone know what might be wrong or a way to fix it. Also do i need to to get a front end allignment?

If your steering feels really loose you might want to look into getting a
1.) a front alingment
2.) steering stabilizer
3.) a drop pitman arm

The shackles are causing you your problem. They change the castor angle which causes the floating feeling. Without the shackles the 3" lift wouldn't be that bad.

Who Makes the lift? The Only 3 inch lift I have heard of is a rough country.
