    Fix your toe.

    Do a drag link flip and track bar raise.

    Those two should help.

    It’s not the plane it’s where they mount and they are clearly not parallel from looking at that photo.

    Ended up being the ball-joints, took her wheeling a couple times and she drives like a dream again. Had no idea ball-joints could effect it that much.

    What brand ball joint did you replace with?

    I didn't change them out, everyone I talked to about it said they would need "broken in" and after a good day of wheeling, and a bit of driving she drives like stock again. no issues.

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.
