    trying to cure my bump steer.
    I upgraded to a crown hd steering a year or so ago with a Rancho stabilizer. Still had bump steer. I upgraded the whole front end( adjustable control arms, adj. track bar, ball joints and wheel bearings) still have bump steer. So I was thinking maybe a the crossover beefy steering kit but the more I read about crossover steering the more I want to save my clams for a Currie. But is this gonna solve anything? Hate throwing darts at parts but I thought I did everything right as far as my budget was concerned.
    I just got ďthe cureĒ in the mail today and installed it. Still have the bump steer. FYI I have installed all the parts myself and I have torked to specs. Hereís a pic. Is there anything visually wrong?IMG_4488.jpg

    I bought one for the lift I have, rough country 6605 I didnít install it because it looked like it would make my stabilizer hit my track bar. Do I have the wrong style track bar for my set up maybe? I have a rough country adj track bar.

    Tie rod and drag link

    Itís been a while since heís had it but from what I recall on a stock TJ the tie rod from wheel to wheel was flat so that is what I tried to duplicate. It never completely went away but was very driveable in the end. I canít remember where the stabilizer mounted honestly

    Check out the steering kit from offroad only. It separates the drag link and tie rod. Weíve installed a few and have had positive results.

    Im running a 3Ē lift on 32ís. Just installed the Currie correctlync and so far I love it. Extremely beefy and really tightened up my steering even without the stabilizer installed. The kit does recommend not using a drop pitman arm.

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.
