Did you remember to loosen ALL of the bolts that go through the bushings at each end of the control arms after the lift? Then bounce the Jeep a few times and the tighten the bolts to spec while the Jeep is sitting on the ground. If you just installed the spacers without doing that, then the bushings are binding and twisted out of their normal position. I've had 2-inch poly lift pucks on mine for a few years now. No creaking from 11 to 115 degrees. :)

Unless you have aftermarket adjustable control arms, paying full price for an alignment on a WJ is a ripoff. The only thing that can be adjusted is the toe. :( There are vids on YouTube that show you how to do that with a measuring tape, in your driveway. :)

If you need more space under the rig to torque the control arm bolts properly, you can jack it up and set it on jackstands under the axles. Now you have more room to work, and the suspension is still being compressed by the weight of the rig. :)
