I need some help here!

Ok so i just bought a 09 rubicon 4 door jk with 35s and a 4 inch teraflex lift. Drives great until you do a turn over 50 then coming out of turn its like the front just wants to keep turning like the chassis is going a diffrent way than body. Any ideas? Please help it's scary to drive over 55 i know it's lifted it's not my first jeep and not my first lifted veh. Also I am a jeep tech i work at a dealer but never ran into this before.

Is the steering wheel returning to center on its own after a turn or do you have to steer it back.? Are the rear brakes activating and ABS/ESP light coming on? At 4" lift you will loose caster ...

Sounds to me like the BIG lift took all of your positive caster-

Now the steering has no input for it's "return to 0" (straight) position-

Probably need adj Lower Control Arms (LCA)-and re-ctr steering as ncb says-

Good luck

The steering wheel not centered, alone will drive the system nuts. Center steering wheel first before doing anything else.

Drive forward into repair area keep front tires as straight as possible. Notice the orientation of the steering wheel spokes. With a w15mm wrench loosen 2 nuts on collar on draglink ( just off steering box). Turn collar 1/2 to one turn, check steering wheel orientation, if the steering wheel is going the wrong turn the draglink collar in the opposite direction. Repeat until the steering wheel is centered. Take for a test ride, you may have to do this procedure a couple times till its dialed right in.
