Jeep is pulling to the left today

Yesterday I installed an adjustable track bar and centered the steering wheel.

Any idea why it's pulling left now? When I let go of the steering wheel it goes left.

I had an alignment done on Saturday but that was before the track bar and centering the wheel.

Did you eat a reeeeeally big meal last night?

I second the air pressure check, then mentally go thru the procedures you went thru to see if something you did was questionable... Good luck!

OK. I will check them.

I believe I'm running 28 psi in my 35x12.5x15 Goodyear MTR's.

It's not the pressure in the tires. Make sure the pressure is the same in all the tires. But it's likely your alignment. Additionally, 28 lbs. is pretty low.

actually 28 is pretty good. You fill up mud tires to much and you get bounced around likea rag doll. My tire from the shop are at 35 they are stiff I am going to be putting them down to 30ish and then it will be like driving on clouds!! My old tires I had at 25 psi(coopers STTs) felt nice too

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

when you put the adjustable track bar on and adjusted it to center your wheels you need to redo your alignment mostly your draglink to recenter the steering wheel
