    Were you required to disconnect anything? Or lengthen/relocate wires?

    You can't just lift the body 3" and not loosen some wires and hoses. It could be a broken wire, lose vacuum hose, the gas line..........

    First thing I would check is all the bolts you removed or loosened during the lift process- Mighta messed up a ground.
    Next stop is rechecking everything you stretched or disconnected during the lift....
