Lowering spring install issues

Hi guys. I installed lowering springs today and now the low traction light is constantly on. Any ideas? Could it of been from how out of whack the alignment was.

It actually turned out to be an extremely bad alignment. The toe was so off the wheel was turned toward the left stalk. Had an alignment done and it was all good.

Haha yep. All good now. It was great for the auto crosses. The combination if the lowering springs and negative camber made the truck turn in so well compared to before.

Thanks. You were great to deal with. Although after getting some rides in the FFR cobras I think I may build one of those for the track instead of using the jeep lol.
