Hello everyone again!!
So being new to the Jeep life, after putting on the 2” Mopar lift, w/ new track bar on 35” KO2’s my ride seems to be moving all over the road at medium to high speeds, is this normal when lifting jeeps? Or what can I do to help stabilize the drive? I did the alignment, so that shouldn’t be the answer...hopefully it was done right lol.

Too little caster and too much tire pressure are my first thoughts, in that order. Factory specs are too low. 6-6.5° of positive caster is the sweet spot.

Thanks everyone. I will check the caster and I installed it. Working on cars is not my day job, but I do work on cars and build them as a hobby. The wheels & tires were put on by a buddy's shop, who also did the alignment so I am sure he did a good job for me.
PS: I don't know why those hats and a double image uploaded lol
thanks for all your help!!

Have you had the steering box replaced with the new one yet?
