Added Accessories/Build. Now Driving Issues

2012 JK Wrangler Sport. Just had new bumpers/Flares/Wheels/Tires/Top put on and now it is scary to drive. It is all over the road. I was going 40 and had to put on the brake(rush hour traffic) and it swerved so much I was almost in the next lane. Feels like I am bouncing down the road. Went from stock to 33 wheels. Any suggestions? Air pressure? Alignment?

most when going over stock size. more over wider tires on stock or wheels no more then 9" wide and no more then 17". will be in the 27 psi+-3. If the tires are E rated for 3/4;1ton. they tend to ride harsh on a light weight jeep. Those type tires are great on a real truck. jeep is 1/4 ton, basically a car.

what shocks? no other suspension changes? Shocks are much of bouncing. Tires are next but to lower the psi you will need a programmer to turn the Nanny off or to set the new threshold. If you changed wheels did they remove the caliper clips on the wheel studs? stock wheels have a recces for that after market will not. they are not needed just when on the factor line keeps thing from falling off.

Unless you hit something it WONT need an alignment. I have always done our jeep with a tape measure and angle finder. it is that simple to align a JK . Though today i wonder how many can even use one or the other.............................................

Stock shocks. Went to LT 305/70R16s. When braking I am all over the road. Could the brakes need adjusting after the tire change? Right there is 45 PSI. What should it I be running? No sure about the caliper clips. How who I check? Thanks for your reply.
