I'm wondering if it's a combination of the lift and heavier tires, mine has a 2" level with 33s but just my thought process, the center of the wheels should stay the same (in relation to the geometry) as the 33s just higher off the ground by an inch or so compared to the 33s just my two cents anyhow, maybe the axles were wearing anyhow and the extra weight of the tires rotating did them in

Yes certainly could be that
