Are both sway bars hooked up? Do both sway bars have the correct length links to keep the geometry correct?Are your shocks in good shape?

It should be obvious but is the rear track bar on and everything is tight, including the bracket that raises the drivers side of the bar to compensate for the lift?

How does it move? Side to side? Rolls over easy like the links aren't hooked up, feels like it scrapes the door handles on turns, or does it bounce easy? If it goes side to side, the problem lies with the track bar or the mounting. If it rolls easy, check the sway bar links and bushings. If it bounces easy, the shocks are shot.
