|98SaharaPOS||I always pray for the days that the wind is going to be at my back, I have a 3.5 hour trip to my parents house and if the wind is helping me out I HOLD 70-75 on the highway in my Sahara and its on 33's... But, if the wind is against anything but at my back its a heck of a fun ride trying to keep it on the road haha. Just a lot of fun to drive a Wrangler, it always has a way of keeping things interesting.|

|Drummer_192||Here in Kansas its always windy, were talking 40 mile an hour constant, up 60 MPH gust. I cant barely go 55 in my 4 banger into the wind and im getting thrown all over the road. Nearly into ditches and into the other lanes at times.|

|gmercer308||It's most likely the wind, I have noticed this issue also. Especially when I have my hard top on compared to my soft top...|

We just ran over to Post Falls Idaho in Amy's Jeep. We're getting 30 to 35mph winds and we got blown all over the freeway.
It's like an E ticket ride at Disney land

|TJSportGirl||Because we have a high center of gravity, for my jeep it's always been the wind. Especially going home on the highway with open space all around. When the wind gets going, my job will sway yes.|

|jdhallissey||haha I was going to say I get blown around like a 2 dollar "women" does in china town lol|

If it only does it when windy, then normal. If you always have trouble keeping it between the lines, then either something's wrong our you need to lay off the SoCo.

Wind has much effect on a tall box.
If you get a strong crosswind on the highway, watch out.

|Sb5551||Take your top of you wont get blown around as much.|
|05-22-2009 10:03 AM|
|Jerry Bransford||I get blown around a little, I'm pretty certain what you're describing is normal for a vehicle that has the barn-door aerodynamics of the Wrangler.|

|jasonbwell||well. the track bar bushing was bad, but i had it replaced. how do i inspect the sway bar?|
|05-22-2009 09:25 AM|
|jeepfreak4x4||I just installed 3.25, and screwed up the track bar installation. If your track bar bushing is bad, or the capture hardware is loose / whole bar is loose, you can be certain there is some road sway happening. Easy way to test it is park it on a smooth flat spot, and w/ the engine running, and reaching through the window, just turn the wheel a fraction one way, and then the other. If the steering wheel moves, and the wheels don't react, then the track bar is an area of concern. OR - your sway bar links are damaged, or even broken. That is completely visual inspection. Just a few thoughts to consider.|

wind or sway?
does the wind effect your jeeps when its really windy? Sort of blows you around the road a little bit? I'm wondering if this is actually the issue or if the swaying is something else?
