In early July of this year I had the JSport lift kit installed on my 2021 PP. A few months earlier I had already swapped out the stock wheels and tires for 18" wheels and tires. Right after the lift kit was installed I drove about 1700 miles to a house I own in a western suburbs of Denver CO to do some sweat equity on it for a couple months and supervise contractors (while working for my employer). The car never quite felt right after the lift kit was installed and aligned. It kind felt like it was floating and I noted it drifted a little to the side something which is a bad sign. I took it to the Boulder Honda dealership (a great dealership!) and as I suspected the 4 x 4 mechanic's alignment subcontractor completely screwed up the alignment and managed to uncenter the steering wheel. The Boulder Honda dealership fixed all of that but noted that the JSport lift kit positioned my front rear tires in a flat spot in the wheel well and when I turned my front tires hard into the locked position they rubbed against the back of the front wheel wells - on the driver's side more than in the passenger side. The only solution we came up with is to go to another 4x4 shop and ask them to press put the back of the front wheel wells by about 0.25 inches. Has anyone else who installed the JSport lift kit encountered this issue and what year is your PP? I wonder if this issue is new to the 2021 model.
