Hit a stump - steering wheel off centre now

Hi guys

Yep, hit a stump in the long grass and it hit near the front left wheel. Can't see any damage underneath...no bent bits but the steering wheel is now off centre - it's right-of-centre now. Any suggestions? Thought maybe it's done something in the steering box??? Dunno.

The slightest bend in your tie rod would do that.

That is a great site 4Jeepn, I wanted to tell him how to correct the steering wheel, and here you gave a site that explains it all.


Would be great to have this picture as a sticky.

I'll sticky it for now, so we don't loose track of it. Something is supposedly in the works for stuff like that, but we don't know what it is yet.

I'll tell you what happend to me!

After the 2005 Palo Duro JJUSA...

On the 9 hour drive home my wheel was off over 20 degrees.

I put it up on the rack when I got home and the Tech thought I have bent my Track Bar. We un-did the front ned to swap it out and it all fell back in to place.

I had bumped my front diff so had I shifted it about 2"

We bolted it all up again and did an allingment and I ran it like that for over a year. Last week I replced the lower tire rod becuse it was so violated we could no longer get it true during the alingment.

I have got to learn to stop hitting stuff!!
