Re: Steering

First things I check is the steering linkages, arms, balljoints, as said above is there a drop pitman arm? Does the steering arm come in contact with anything else (eg. soa system..thats bad!) Did the past owner get the correct angle on the front diff after the SOA (eg castor angle).
Also what kind of shape are the shocks in? I run the Rancho 9000 and for street use I run them firm!

Will move up to steering over system when I replace my axle. For now its a Great ride puts me to sleep on the highway with the smooth YJ leafs and listening to my Super Swampers hummm along (just real relaxing to drive)[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
