Traction problem

Im a new jeep owner and new to this forum. I do have some auto mechanic experience but not super advanced. My problem is...I put 3.5in rubicon express lift on my 2015 JKU and now the rear end seems to feel like its going to fall off. Im thinking either the cam bolts on the lower control arms are off or traction bar off? Please help

You need to be more descriptive than that...
What exactly is it doing?

Did you loosen everything up and re-torque while the vehicle is sitting with the weight on the wheels?

I don't like cam bolts or Rubicon Express Lifts for this reason. I've read numerous people have had this issue out of the those lifts. I'd remove the cam bolts, buy some correction brackets, AEV or Rancho, and look at your rear track bar and make sure all the bolts are tight. Check all your control arms as well. I learned from my experience with the cheaper lifts, there is a reason they are cheap.
