Lifted. Now what?

So I just installed the 2.25 inch OME lift kit (complete kit)... Got spydertax 1.5 inch spacers, and 265/70/17 bf Goodrich all terrains. I have a 05 Laredo with 4wd low...
Now I have 3 issues:
1) the jeep suspension is making weird noises from time to time
2) the left tire rubs when I turn wheel all the way to the right. Rubs on inside well behind front left wheel... Any way to fix it?
3) are there any other parts I need to keep this lift in good condition?

The jeep doesn't seem to have much problem but I'm just still worried. Just took it out on a minor backroad trial and it handled well. Some sounds I didn't like but all went well. I'm in northern Virginia.

Please Help!!!!!

1) re-check all your bolts and make sure they are tight.

2) google "Jeep pinch weld mod" and YouTube the same.

3) pressure washer to regularly keep it clean

Re: Lifted. Now what?

Ok! I work at a carwash so I get free washes which is convenient. Are there any other mods I should do to it or any parts to replace? I have seen some people replace the brake lines and the upper arms but I haven't done that. Doesn't seem necessary for mine... Idk
