    What are you having it on? JL With the PR44 up front? Are you PSC on that rig? I canít keep up with your builds. You have so many now.

    Doubletapdaddy and Wayoflife are already running long arms and I would assume Mel is as well.

I've been hearing from lots of JL owners who have the same problem too.
    Thatís exactly what Iím experiencing. It happened on those cold morning in Maine but once the temps warmed up it drove like a tight race car. Then sat and sun it was 25 out. It drove great the first 30 mins of coming out of a 60 degree garage then once it sat outside and got cold while running errands it started again. So strange. Is it the steering pressure from the box? Iím honest just thinking out loud.

    Yeah and still having issues. Man itís like itís the frame moving or the steering box and pump pressures. Is anyone having it with a PSC setup? That would eliminate the steering pump and box.

    I have long arms installed and have a PR44. I should note that the problem started BEFORE we got the PR44 installed and I thought I was able to mitigate it through the use of a Rancho track bar and Synergy tie-rod and drag link. The fact that it's come back made me think that it's gotta be the ball joints being that Dynatrac recycled the ones from our factory axle. We now have over 40k on them.

    What Durham said and or installing a ram assist will address the wobble but like you said, it would only be masking whatever is the real culprit. For now, my next move will be to brace the track bar frame mount and if that doesn't work, replace the ball joints.

    I have always wondered about the electric steering box. I'm running a PSC on my JT right now and think that the steering feel is a lot better than it was bone stock.

    Well I was ready to just replace the front axle but that doesnít sound like it fixes it. I really want cast knuckles again Does Synergy make a draglink flip kit? I could have sworn I saw one on a certain jeep. I wonder if that would help.

    Man, that's a bummer. Hope you get it figured out. I'm feeling pretty lucky I've not had that on my JL.

    Yeah I moved your JT 50 ft and that steering was so nice even in that short distance. I might call Tom and hear his thoughts on just a big bore box on the JL. We gotta get to the bottom on this. Itís so frustrating and glad we can all work together towards a solution. Everything was amazing then one day it all went sideways. Watch it end up being the weaker frame and larger tires. Ugh

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.
