steering wheel not centering

I recently purchased some adjustable arms to get my caster angle cause my jeep would wander on the road my steering wheel wouldnt correct it self after a turn. The adjustable arms helped but not completely. The caster angle is corrected but its just not centering the wheel. Is there anything else that would contribute to the wheel not centering back.

Please re explain what you mean by "Steering wheel not centering". Do you mean your steering wheel is crooked while driveing strait? Or after a turn, the Jeep doesn't snap back to strait ahead by itself. Also, it would help to know how much caster you are running at. Ay 5.5 degrees, mine drives better than stock.

Sounds like you could use more Caster. Caster gives the ability to go strait by itself. I like lots myself. How many degrees are you set at now?

according to my rc knowlege the caster being zero affects this unless the spring or whatever turns them back is really tight.


also here is what i found http://www.circletrack.com/tipstrick...ter_toe_setup/
