Cured my death wobble and centered my steering wheel then drove around with an amazing sense of accomplishment.

And no, I didn't just get a new steering stabilizer.

I am still working with mine, putting short arms tomorrow to see if it is my caster. Already fixed the track bar messing up, and TREs and Ball Joints, and axle joints all fine, hoping on it being my caster a little off

Check your tie rod end connection at the drag link. The drag link likes to get wallowed out if that bolt wasnt tight enough, causing bad vibes and death wobble.

So I might be an idiot

I just bought way too much stuff for my jeep... I just ordered a new header with the flex joint, magnaflow cat, dynomax cat-back, brake line kit, braided flexible brake lines, 1" daystar body lift, lockable fuel door, new torque box, and new front and rear floor pans for the driver side. I really don't know how to put any of this on so I guess I have to start looking for a jeeper who likes beer and guitar lessons lol.

A depressing Christmas because I don't know how to play with any of my toys. I couple of welders have said they don't want to touch the torque box install. Wimps.

Reconfigured Sun Screen

Its getting a bit chilly night times up here in MI. I reconfigured my sunscreen from full roll bar coverage to over the mid cabin crossover bar and down in between the sound bar and behind the front seats. With the doors on and top still down this eliminated about 85% of the cool back-draft. It's easy and fast to adjust the sunscreen one way or the other depending on weather and worked great!

Replaced the drag link and the tie rod end on my dads jeep. Boy was that some work. Damn rust.

Ended up ruining the steering dampener because it didn't want to let go.

I have been thinking about doing this since I did my sye. Did you relocate the perches on the axel too, or just the frame mounts?

Just the frame mount. After moving the springs my rear pinion was a little off again. A quick adjustment of my adjustable upper control arms and everything is good again.

A lot of places makes relocation kits. I bought the ones from Ballistic Fabrication. Lowest price I found and the quality is solid.

Excellent, eyeing mine it didn't look like just the frame relocation would fix it completely but it definitely looks to have completely straightened yours. Nice work.
