Put the rear frame on jack stands so that the axle is hanging freely, then put the jack under the pumpkin and slowly raise the axle until the pressure is taken off the trackbar bolt.

lifts on now looks good but to me has more roll then i thought would have, also seems like the rear end is trying to pass me although that could be me, then there is the wobbles mostly 35-45 gotta read more about that, it did have a slight wobble before nothing bad though just sreeing wheel slight vibs otherwise its good, any thoughs would be listened to and checked. it still needs alingment.

You need to align the front end and make sure the tires are balanced.It shouldn't have any roll with the 2.2 shocks.I ran that lift with a BL/MML and 35's on my 03'.I didn't use the huge t case drop spacers that came with it.I used those for seat risers.

Cam86 I haven't driven it that much but what I have driven the ride feels good differently no worse then stock ride, and yes you can tell a difference, to me any how Im short and have to raise leg up higher then before ha go figure.

Boogieman I didn't use the transfer drop ether it has a little vib but Iam planning the motor mounts what do you think? I will use your idea for the transfer drop kit though to raise the seats thats a great idea better then throwing it way. I dont understand how the alignment can make that much difference in the wobbles? I didn't move the track bar in the front could that be part of the problem? As far as the roll could be just me I am not sure yet.

I would definitely do a MML or drop the t case slightly with washers.Any vibes will ruin your u-joints in time.I redrilled the axle side hole and relocated my front track for this lift.When you lift your Jeep with a suspension lift at all,it changes all the angles.When I did my 3.25" lift and BL,I got DW on the highway a couple times driving 1/2 hour to get my 35's installed.The tire shop saw me when I got it and said it looked like a wheel was going to fall off.They told me everything was loose underneath and I needed to get it checked out.I told them that this was one of many lifts I've installed and all I needed was an alignment(which they didn't do).I couldn't drive over 30 mph all the way back home and got DW around 30 times.I did the alignment(toe-in)and my Jeep rode great with no shimmy or DW at all.
