Not yet. If the consensus was to get a trackbar and front adj LCAs, then I was gonna wait until after I installed that

Good luck!

Don't think so. Everything was properly torqued down

Help me diagnosis my left pull . . .

Purchased JKU Sport in July 2012
Jeep has 2.5 inch TF spring lift with Fox Shocks
35x12.5s
Artec front truss kit, LCAs, upper and lower C-gussets

Took her off roading in Jan 2013 - upon return, noticed pull to the left. recentered the steering wheel but still noticed a slight pull

May 2013 - Went rock crawling and my tie rod/SS got bent. On the trail, I had to remove the SS. On my way back, death wobble/shimmy occurred so I pulled over, salvaged the SS and reinstalled it. DW went away. ALSO, my pull was completely resolved after my tie rod bent (LOL)

June 2013 - replaced tie rod with synergy. Adjusted toe in to 1/8 inch (fyi bent tie rod led to almost 2 inches of toe in). Replaced SS with fox 2.0 IPF

Well, the pulling has come back. I took the SS off and it made no difference. No other suspension mods

Thoughts?
