    Steering wheel coming un centered

    Anyone have a solution to mu JKU rubicon having the steering wheel coming un centered after being in a hard twist with suspension ?? I've upgraded drag link, track bar and tie rod assembly. i have new control arms on the way.
    it's irritating and i know others having the same issue !?

    do you mean off centre when finished off roading and driving home? then you centre and it does it again?

    I would start looking at your track bar upgrade and steering components. something is bent.

    Bent my tie rod on a rock, front tires were toed in about a inch. Better check alignment or you will kill your tires. Steering wheel was clocked about 2" or so to the left

    yes on how it happens. I have teraflex steering components. It has happened a few times. I have a few others having same issue. I am slowly upgrading and supporting everything to hopefully stop it.

    Something is getting bent, either your drag link or tie rod.

    As mentioned, something is bending OR something is tearing like a track bar mount OR your sector shaft is cracked and twisting. I have seen all the above happen.

    Check the clamps on your drag link. They should be closing tight on the gap not on the solid part of the adjuster. If that makes sense.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
