    While I personally have not yet measured the exact angles (itís getting to that) I can say they look visually parallel. It is my understanding through the research conducted that the bends in the track bar are irrelevant and it is the angles at each end.

    I have no experience with your setup, but Iím just gonna throw this out there... is the tie rod supposed to be mounted that way on the xd60? As in is it supposed to be mounted on top instead of the bottom?

    Did your xd60 come with the raised trackbar mount? If so, you might want to call dynatrac to See if the knuckle already is designed for the raised trackbar mount.

    Double check all your steering components. We discovered a club members brand new Jeep with a loose pitman arm that caused death wobble. Now she needs a new pitman arm and maybe steering box because the shop failed to tighten the bolt.

    Also, was there a previous lift on the Jeep prior to the current setup. Make sure there isn’t a dropped pitman arm or other components that might throw your geometry off.

    They look to be mounted the same to me when zoomed in.

    Update on Death Wobble Investigation

    While at EJS in Moab last week I met with Dynatracís Tony Carvallo (technician) to discuss the death wobble on my 2016 JKUR following axle upgrade to Dynatracís XD60ís. Tony took the time from the vendor event to come out to my jeep to personally investigate. He was able to deduce that the stock steering gear box had significant movement when the steering wheel was turned without power. Everything else looked good so it looks like i will be researching a steering system upgrade. Thanks again to everyone on this forum that provided input and for Dyunatracís customer service.

    Like others here, met Tony during the WAL New Years trip. He was a class act - super fun to be around . Not surprised that he went way above and beyond . Really cool

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.
