Post Help after track bar install!!!

Guys,

Yesterday, I installed a Superlift adjustable track bar on my son's 2001 TJ. After the TB was installed, the steering wheel is off about 90 degrees. The Jeep still drives what appears to be normal. Is this common after TB install? I know that the overwhelming vote is for the JKS bars and I understand. This may be where I end up. I was hoping there was some adjustment I could make to re-center the steering wheel. If so, please give some details. The TJ has some spacer lift that was on there when we purchased the Jeep which only has 36000 miles on it. The lift is right at 3" and the tires were offset from side-to-side. That is the primary reason for installing the adjustble TB. We have plans on later installing a good suspension lift/system. Thanks for the help.

If the axle moved, the draglink will need to be adjusted to recenter the steering wheel. There is an adjusting sleeve in the middle that you just turn to make the draglink longer or shorter, and the steering wheel will move (if the tires are on the ground). The adjusting sleeve is about 5" long, and has a bolt at either end to "lock" it into place. Loosen the bolts, adjust to recenter the steering wheel (turn the key in the ignition to "unlocked", don't ask me how I know) and then retighten the bolts, and you are good to go!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

adjust your trackbar to center the axle.
adjust draglink as above, its the sleeve closest to the pitman arm, two 15mm bolts i think, 13 or 15mm anyway
