    All that pavement posing mustíve done it!

    I saw the movement in the video and thought they might have left some things loose intentionally to demonstrate. Damn!

Even though this was a brand new axle and everything should technically be the same, all it would take is for something to be a fraction of a inch off, to change something like toe or the position of our steering wheel. And, being that we have well over 20,000 hard miles on all our factory steering components, we thought now would be as good a time as any to also check the condition of our joints and bushings on the tie-rod, drag link and track bar. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you'll get to see Jim, the owner of Dynatrac explain how to do these checks, set your toe-in and recenter your steering wheel - essentially, basic front end alignment 101. Of course, this video can apply to anyone with a Jeep JK or JL Wrangler and we hope that you find the information in it to be useful.

    Great video, Eddie! Very informative. I recently upgraded my springs and replaced balls joints. I had the death wobble, had to make a few adjustments to the front suspension and get the Jeep aligned to fix everything.

    Kind of surprising to see for sure. Or, maybe I should say disappointing. I would have thought I could get more out of a factory tie-rod end. Hell, my JK components held up a LOT better.

    Glad to hear you were able to get your death wobble fixed.

    The best tech video yet. Great information. So much value in this video and the why behind the what is what really sets it apart from others floating around out there. The explanation of Toe in and why itís important was great.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
