    Not sure if this is the best place for this post or not, but since I am interested in PSC steering box I thought I would start here. I recently have upgraded 2012 Rubicon JKU to 3.5 Rock Krawler with 37” tires. We removed steering stabilizer and my buddy doesn’t think I need one (and it will just get smacked when we go wheeling). I added Yeti drag link but haven’t done anything else with steering. However it seems to “wander” a lot on roads and requires me to actively adjust. I’m pretty new to jeeps so not that familiar with this but pretty sure it can be corrected. My question is whether that requires a new steering box or steering stabilizer?

    Likely neither. Make sure track bar is torqued properly and has no play. Check your caster. If caster is low, it will cause your symptom. Also check all steering joints for play. What tire pressure are you running?

    you need to set your castor angle on your axle correctly. Did your kit come with control arms? Also did you do a drag link flip?

    Thanks for response. Everything torqued correctly. Just rechecked last weekend. Caster is fine as well and actually took it in last week for alignment. I’m running 25 psi. BFG KO2 if it matters.

    Thanks for quick reply. Yes it came with new control arms. And yes I purchased and installed Yeti drag link flip.

    Did you do a final torque down of your control arms with the Jeep sitting on the ground under its own weight? Same for track bars.

    Make sure your drag link and track bar is as close to parallel as you can get it.

    If everything was done correctly and assuming the that alignment shop didn’t fuck up your caster than it should all be good. Maybe the issue is with your yeti drag link. Honestly it sounds like a caster issue to me.

    I did do final torque (and recheck last weekend) with it sitting on the ground. I’ll check to see if they are parallel. Thanks again for ideas.

    So does this mean u can plan on hydrolic upgrade in the future if you get the ported and just run it as if u ran one without the hydrolics for instance if cash was a hold off point? Been thinking about getting the big bore2 but I almost figured for 700 more why not get the whole ram kit.... really running down this path cuz I got a fox ats which is defently nice but as you all know impulse buys happen lol!

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.
