One tire sticking out further than the other

I just installed a zone 3 inch suspension to my TJ and my front left tire sticks out about 1-1/12 inches more than the right tire. How can I fix this problem?? I installed the relocation bracket, but it didn't seem to help. Would an adjustable track bar help fix the problem?

Yes, Adjustable Track Bars will Fix this.

The Front Axle Moved to the Driver Side and the Rear Axle Moved to the Passenger Side.

Yup, need an adj front trac bar. The relocation bracket is just for the rear axle. Your front axle is shifted over so an adj trac bar will cure this.

Excellent.. Can I drive it for a week while I wait for the adj track bar to get delivered? Also, should I wait to do the alignment or can I get the alignment done now then install the adj track bar?

Yes you can wait for the track bar. Many people do not even put an adjustable track bar on and drive it that way. If I were you I would do the alignment myself as it is quite easy.

Are you sure it is 1 1/2 or is that a guess. A 2" lift usually moves them about 3/4. Anyway, there is no issue with handling or tire wear from off centler axles. Many with small lifts do no do anything. The only risk is with rubbing depending on the backspacing of the wheels.

TJ Toe-in Alignment - 1

TJ Toe-in Alignment - 2

Jerry Branford has posted his method a number of times and just do a google search on wrangler alignmet. You find a lot of sights and videos. It's easy to do.

I'm going to ride the Jeep for a few weeks and then decide on the adjustable. If i'm getting any vibes i'll probably put the JKS adjustable on. Will the wheels being a little off center cause the death wobble?

Off center axles has nothing to do with vibrations or death wobble.
