Teraflex BB All over the place?

So I just installed the teraflex budgetboost and changed my tires to 35s. Ive been having ALOT of wander while driving at higher speeds to the point where its actually dangerous. Ive done the research and I guess the first thing to do is adjust the camber angle? Which means going to adjust lower arms right? Just wanted to post something to see if anyone else had these issues? I was under the impression that a small lift like this wouldnt have the effects that im experiencing....anyone else with a bb have this problem? Could it be that I did something wrong on the install? any help is appreciated.

No need for adjustable control arms for 2.5" BB. Sounds like something isn't tightened down properly. Since you unhooked the rear trackbar to do the drop-down bracket, I would go there first and make sure that everything is torqued to specs. Remember that you are supposed to tighten everything up with the Jeep on the ground (not jacked up). Tightening the bolts while the Jeep is jacked up will cause the issues that you describe.

I would slightly loosen everything you bolted and re-torque them again with the Jeep on the ground. The track-bars are particularly important.

Put stock tires back on and take it for a ride all bets are on the 35" tires. My #1 suggestion to ALL who install a lift is - Run the lift with stock tires (or at least the tires that you've been running before the lift) for at least 2 weeks to ferret out any possible suspension issues, retorque, recheck, then install the new tires and rims. Change one variable at a time, it will save you a lot of grief in the long run.

If the issue persists with stock tires check all parts and torque as outlined in post above, specifically both front and rear track bars.

Back to the tires. Make sure you check your tire pressure that they are all even. If the pressure is too high they'll bounce all over. Should be running around 27psi.
