TJ Steering Issues

99 TJ with a 4" ProComp lift. Steering wheel keeps getting knocked off center and alignment wont stay. Seems a part of the stearing must be worn out. I want to replace it with a good upgrade. Please advise and suggest.

I seem to have a similar problem. Jerry B says bent tie rod but I checked and it looks normal. Waiting to see what else to check.

If you're looking for upgrade options, I'd go with either the Currie steering, or the Ultimate Currie Steering package from Savvy. The Ultimate steering from Savvy is the same as the regular Currie steering setup, it just has an indestructible tie-rod. As far as what's keeping your alignment from staying set, it's hard to tell without more info or hands on time. If you're guessing whether your tie-rod is bent or not, throw a straight edge on there to make sure. It can be deceiving if you just eyeball it.

X2. After bending my stock drag link on 33s, and replacing it with another stock drag link to get it back on the road (It's my DD) I'm saving to get the Currie setup.
