I replaced my 13 with 19 springs and got about 2" of lift,I noticed my steering is off center to the left, so I tried to center it back but it just did not work, I tried many times and i ended up turing the bar full turn and lost my starting point and the ESP started to kick.. So i need your advice on how i should center it,? Do i move the bar slightly Up or down or i have to go full round to center ? Do i need to have the jeep running when i move the bar or it has to be off?

Get the wheels straight and then just turn the adjustment sleeve on the drag link until the steering wheel is where you want it.

You can leave it loose while you test the adjustment. Just remember to tighten it down when you're all done.

It is hard to visually tell if the wheels are straight.. Is there a method to get them straight and be sure they are 100% straight

Loosen the drag link first. Then
Drive it down the street. Once straight you can crawl under the rig and adjust the drag link.

Do i have to turn the adjuster full turn or a slight move adjust the steering, asking because if i move it up or down slightly the steering do not move, and when i do full turn it moves it to center. But when i go and drive it again goes off center and the EsP kicked, do i have to do it when the engine is on or off? I tried with engine on only

Small turns until steering wheel is centered. ESP can light up but should turn off after you drive for a while. Mine did that after my lift.

Engine on or off. Doesn't really matter.

When I say loosen the drag link I just mean the adjustment sleeve. Just clarifying.
