Thanks STLRubi for your feedback. After more research, I removed the bracket. Steering is MUCH better and the Jeep feels more in control. Had it aligned today (second time in 2 mos) and the TC came on again on the freeway.

The only thing out of spec is thrust angle.

My question to you....should that bracket have gone on the rear to keep the axles parallel? I no longer have the install docs for the TF lift.

Curious as to why they didn't give you a caster reading...

Nothing looks too out of whack though. I've had my ESP turned off ever since I lifted it... ESP went off a lot before the alignment, was better after the alignment, but still went off. I just shut it off with the steering wheel dance. Every time it goes off it is applying your rear brakes and can wear out your rear pads really fast.

With it off you still have ABS, but no traction control (not like the jeep needs it) and no electronic stability control. Then at every stop it beeps twice.
