Jeep shakes in 4wd while turning at low spd.

I just installed a teraflex 3T lift and now when I am in 4wd and turn sharp right at low speeds, my Jeep shakes like crazy. Anyone had this or know why it might do this?

Yes, dry pavement, but I am not talking the typical little wheels skip a bit and steering wheel shakes. I mean the whole Jeep rocks, I hear a loud metal to metal clanging sound, feels like my engine or tranny is shaking or something.

Especially in tight turns. It cause cause some serious binding. Does it do it in 2wd? Do you have a traction control devices?

It's supposed to do that on dry pavement. 4wd is for dirt, grass, snow, ice, mud, etc. It will usually kick a little bit on a hard turn even offroad.

Does not shake in 2wd. I am thinking about putting it up on jackstands in 4wl and seeing what's shaking. It is not at all normal or good sounding.

To be more specific, the wheels spin independently of each other in 2wd, in 4wd, the do not all spin freely in relation to each other. There is nothing to investigate, this is just what happens when you run in 4wd where you're not supposed to.
