Direction Change

If I am driving along at highway speeds and I let off the gas quickly my Jeep pulls to the right. If I get back on the gas it has a noticeable shift back to the left. Any thoughts as to what this might be? It has not always done this so I don't know if it is just the lift settling in or if something has come loose. I have crawled under and checked most things for looseness but I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have about 2500 miles on the lift and I don't baby my rig. Thanks in advance.

I had that issue with a bad control where the jam nut was not tight and it stripped the arm out and the joint was riding inside the arm

Check your control arm bushings with a pry bar, Stu had an issue with his RE control arm bushings failing

Also your rear trust angle might be off.

Check the welds on the axle at the trackbar bracket too.

Figured it out. 3190 miles on this lift and the upper rear control arm bushings are blown. The lowers don't look good either. Stupid Rubicon Express soft ass rubber bushings. Oh well, looks like I got some work to do. At least they will replace them for free.
Anybody have any recommendations for a poly replacement bushing? I know they will squeek more but they should last longer than one oil change.
