    Well, to be clear, the PR44 reuses the factory aluminum knuckles so that may still be the problem. However, Mel is running UD60's with cast knuckles and still has the problem. He does NOT have a ram assist though so it could still be the OE pump.

    So... when did you install your Patagonia's? Not trying to blame them but Mel has had several customers who've had balance related DW issues and was able to get it under control just by installing a different set of tires. Just a thought.

    Oh, and I'm glad that you got a chance to drive my JT. Me telling you how nice it steers isn't the same thing as having you feel it for yourself. The 3,000 mile drive out, all the wheeling we did and then the 3,000 mile drive back was super nice.

    10k miles ago. I know youíre not pointing at them but good thought. I swapped them with a buddies 37s before the trip for a week and I still had the same issues. I do have the best two up front lol. I donít have any steering shimmy when just driving normally when itís not happening. Yeah, I was referring to Melís rig on the cast knuckles and agree with you on the aluminum knuckles that might be the cause too. We are slowly getting to the final few things left. I really donít want to go hydro which I know would mask it, but Iím not against trying the big bore with the manual psc pump.

    I wasnít expecting it to be that easy Aired down on 40s after being used to mine. I got a big smile on my face for the 30 seconds I was in it.

    Okay, just thought I'd put it out there. Again, a part of me is really starting to suspect the problem might have to do with the electric pump. Seems crazy I know but the fact that the wobble goes away when it's warm out just doesn't make sense to me. I mean, why would a loose or worn out component care what the temps are.

    Oh yeah, I think we pretty much ran the first part of the week at 18 psi and then the later part of the week at 14 and then less after that. Even on pavement and parking at hotels, we still were able to steer with ease.

    LOL - well, you could always toe out. That's what I always do for an emergency fix but it'll wear your tires out in a super hurry.

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.
