    Bump steer and wonky steering. Caster help.

    So Im looking for a good honest welder in SoCal to install an Artec JK axle truss kit which has a raised TB bracket and c-gussets. Ever since I did a high steer DL flip I have had the most annoying bump steer on the highway. I figure the TB bracket would help here and now would be a good time to strengthen my D44 axle. I can do some soldering but im pretty sure it wont hold ha. Any referrals or help would be appreciated.

    I have edited post from welder to bump steer, lol. Before throwing money at this would prefer to address my caster issue. Take a look at these specs and give me your thoughts. Running a 3.5 RE superflex adj lift on PC 35 MT X w/4.75 BS at 33psi, Doetsch alum TR and high steer DL with a fox 2.0 SS flip and new front lower dana spicer BJ. The steering is very wonky, drifts and play in steering. hwy speed over 60 hit a dip and ESC force brakes for like 2 sec. Scares the shit out of the wife where she wont drive it on the fwy. I tend to turn off the ESC while i drive but by no means safe.

    Yea I was hoping a little closer than Fullerton thats about 50miles from me and I would have to leave my rig there and commute back and forth. May have to suck it up and just do it because 4wp near me is not an option.

    I知 sure it値l be worth it. If I still lived in San Diego I would致e made the drive and figured out a ride from there before going anywhere else. I知 still even debating shipping my jk up there from Hawaii when I get the coin for axle swaps and coil overs..

    I have Bubba about 2.5 hours from me now, but otherwise I would probably ship mine out to CA too when that time comes.

About us
努ayoflife is a moniker that I致e 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.
