WJ seems to float at speeds
2001 WJ that is lifted 3.5" from RRO, at highway speeds around 70 the front end seems to float feels loose. I have adjusted the caster last time I was a
on the alignment rack to help this but it still feels like it darts around a lot.

My wife calls it the Jello Jeep because of its handling, would Addco sway bars help his situation?

Thanks, Eric

I can't speak for a lifted jeep, but on mine (stock height) addco sway bars totally transfomed the ride from a soccer mom ride to a sporty, planted feel. What kind of shocks are you running? Are they newer?

What about the upper rear suspension link? I think this is part of the Jello-ness on my WJ.

I'm not so sure that would give you a floaty feel. That would clunck and make a racket if it was worn or in bad shape. They are known to fail on the WJ, but from my experience, they let you know with a clunk.
