Sounds like rubbing but isn't when turning. Help!

I bought Roxy with the 4" super lift on it already. Added 2" daystar spacers. 32x12 tires. 1.25" spacers. Cut the bumper, pushed back the pinch weld. There is plenty of room. The tires aren't rubbing anywhere but...

When I turn it sounds like the tires are rubbing something fierce, the traction control light comes on, and it feels like I just went in to 4 wheel low (kinda jerky). WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THIS??

I have the Quadra Drive 1 (auto 4 wheel drive) sadly. Anyone know how to make it full time 4wd while I'm here?

Common issue with large lifts. The traction control thinks your leaning too far or in a emergency situation, it engages the system hemce the jerkey movement and the rubbing your hearing is probably the elsd in the front grabbing and potentially going full lock when you turn.
I would look into getting the This is from superlifts website. Credit goes to them. Copyright not intentional.

"The Grand Cherokee and Commander were some of the first vehicles to include Jeep’s Electronic Stability Program (ESP). Creating a true performance lift system with ESP compatibility has been a stumbling block for most suspension manufacturers. Superlift® relies on our exclusive Electronic Geometry Recalibration (EGR) module, produced by AEV, to provide the properly calibrated steering input signal to the factory ESP unit. The EGR module also allows for speedometer recalibration, desired when taller height tires and / or different axle gear ratios are installed. The module simply plugs into an existing wiring harness located beneath the dash. Use only with the Superlift® / AEV Cherokee and Commander lift systems.""


Edit just saw that you have Qd1 in that case no elsd in the front, your probably feeling the brake traction and esp engagement.

There is no Quadra Drive 1. I think you mean you have Quadra Trac I. And by the way, all the 4WD Commanders are full time 4WD.
