Re: Jeep pulls to one side..wanders
Well, my YJ handled like complete sh!t after I did the SOA. My bet was it had something to with not having any shocks at all!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Now that I got shocks and bigger tires, she drives pretty damn straigh!! Rides the same as if it were SUA. My suggestions are:
1 - Go check your draglink angle. If it's pretty steep, then it's definetly gonna jump to hell and back when it hits a bump. That's why I didn't chance it and went with a highsteer setup. My draglink is practically prefectly parallel with my tierod. My Jeep wanders a bit from bumps. But I'm hoping once I slap a steering stablizer on it, she'll be good as new!!
2 - Check your alignment. You don't need your dad for this. Come on Joey, get your hands dirty!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Get a tape measurer and measure from one lug on the foward side of the tire to that same lug on the opposite tire. Then do this at the rear of the tire. Get it so they're the same, then pull the front tires together about 1/8-1/4 of a inch more than the rear. That's what I've done and it drives great! I'm debating if I even want to get it aligned or not, since this is working. And I can see the portion of the tire that's contacting the ground form the ring of dirt around it, damn near in the center of both front tires!
3 - You're not holding on tight enough!!!!!!!!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
