Caster Adjustment

I searched this quite a bit and found a lot on JK's. Can I adjust my caster on my TJ or do I need drops?

Some TJ's have adjustment cams on the front lower control arms, and many do not. Even if they have them, caster settings are only adjustable a degree or two. If you Jeep is lifted, and you need to adjust caster, you will have to install front adjustable control arms.

Have you aligned it or had it aligned? Check the toe in and tire pressure. You shouldn't have lost too much caster with a 2.5" lift. What size tires are you running?

I'm willing to bet you hit the nail on the head here.

OP, check out this thread: DIY Alignment Kit and Steps w/Pics... - JeepForum.com. Gives you a great write up on how to align/check and adjust your toe in your driveway. Pretty easy to do and the correct toe may fix your issue. Good Luck!
