Jeep sway

Hey all,
So I put in a simple rough country 4 in lift and have 35x12.50 mickey Thompsons. I was wondering what else I wou.d need to get it to stop swaying all over the road. Super scarey on the highway haha. Doable but scarey. I just ordered control arm bracket to try straightening out the axle a little bit. Eventually when I have the money I'm going to upgrade to adjustable track bars control arms tie rod and a flipped drag link. Is there any uniting under a strict budget that would stop the sway? I read that just lowering the control arms should do the trick with the rough country lift.
Thank you much guys.

Re: Jeep sway

Stupid question but are both sway bars still connected? Running a coil sprung Jeep without a sway bar, or with broken links is down right scary for some people.

Yeah links are connected. We went through after we were done to make sure everything was connected and tightened down.

Re: Jeep sway

Are you running stock track bars? If so your axles are likely sticking out one side quite a bit more than the other, and could have your springs at an angle. Get an adjustable trackbar for the front, and a bracket for the rear.

Re: Jeep sway

It came with brackets for both the front and rear. If it does stick out on one side or the other it's not noticeable

Re: Jeep sway

This may sound stupid also but is your air pressure good.

Re: Jeep sway

I have air pressure at 25 psi it's good now I put control arm lowering brackets on no more sway. Just a little bumpy of a drive now but I think that from the tires sitting on another jeep for a few years

Glad it's working now - I like the cheap fixes the best.
