I am not sure how anyone else feels about this, but this has been something that has always bugged me on my vehicles, until I correct it; the damn thing will not go straight!
They all come from the factory toed to the right and it is extremely annoying when you live in a poor rural area with even poorer roads. I have messed with my draglink for several hours today attempting to fix this, but to no avail.
Does anyone know how to make the JK go straight? it has ~13K on it and does not need an alignment. I understand that they come from the factory toed right, for "safety", what a joke.
I would be willing to bet a paycheck that right toed factory suspensions have caused more accidents than vehicles that do not. The "reasoning" behind this is that if you are inattentive, it is safer for the vehicle to leave the roadway to the right vs left. Why not straight? vehicles that leave the right side of the roadway often over correct and flip, roll, head-on an oncoming vehicle. So why not straight?
Has anyone done this?
Part of what spurred me today was an accident I worked at 3AM this morning where a semi (toed right) rolled because it left the right edge of the roadway.
I don't want this to be my jeep:
Know what I mean?
As a side note: there is ~43,000 pounds of frozen shickens in that trailer.
