CJ-steering woes

I recently installed an AGR superbox 2 on the jeep. Its easy to turn to the left, but very hard to turn right. Also, its difficult to turn the jeep when it sits at idle. It gets more difficult when the jeep is is warmed up.

It has plenty of fluid, I think the air is out of the system, but its tough to be sure. I've been driving it for days and the fluid level remains the same so I think any remaining air is gone.

It had this problem with the stock pump, so I put an AGR pump on figuring that it just needed more fluid. There was no real change.

Any suggestions? At this point I am thinking that part of the problem is that the pressure hose runs too close to the exhaust manifold (1.5") and that the fluid gets too hot. Or that the hose has too many bends in it and the fluid can't flow well. I got the pressure hose from a local parts store and it didnt' fit right so I used my hand tubing bended to make it fit.

Also, right now, the steering is not centered. I have needed to adjust the drag link for a while (it turns more to the right than left. I am wondering if since the superbox 2 is a variable ratio box the fact that the steering is not centered would make it harder to turn one way than the other.

Any thoughts?

Re: CJ-steering woes

i had the same problem and I thought it was the gear box. I changed the box for a new remaned box and the problem was the same. As winter aproached I locked my hubs and the problem went away. This spring I will take a very close look at my front axel. Hope this helps you.
