Not Tracking

Hey MTjeeper.

Did you ever get a fix on your towing problem? My Jeep is tracking fine right now, but I am thinking of larger tires and more lift and I don't want to get into the same problem you have, I am towing it with a 33"RV and I don't need any more worries that far back.

Happy Trails

Re: Not Tracking

Actually I got it fixed. I added axle shims (wedges)to the front end to change the caster. I used 4 degree wedges. I really didnt like to do that because you lose benefit of the spring pin into the axle when you add the wedges.

If you dont mess with the shackles, you should maintain your caster fine. I added 1.5" lift shackles and that change the angle of the front axle, therefore changing the caster.

Good luck.

Everyday travel is off-roading in this town....
