Scout Mine usually run about $ 50 for a four wheel alignment.

Or you could do it yourself:

Scout Did you ever get an alignment after you installed the lift? This may be as simple a toe correction.

wbrett1027 id say 1/4 out of the steering is missing. im about to upgrade the steering box to a heavy duty one that
SG-621M - PSC Motorsports Xtreme Duty Steering Box with 3/4"x30 Splines (O-Ring) for 87-02 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Cherokee XJ - Quadratec

but how do i know if the tie rods have play i mean yes they do move but. and can i replace the tie rod ends with stock? would that even last or what?

Sb5551 We are definatly gonna need a better description. The tie rods should have no play besides being able to be rotated.

You can always upgrade to a Durango steering box, but make sure that nothing else is broken first.

whiteyj How much "play" are we talking about? Can you give us a better description?

jtalar Short of buying an upgraded steering box, and all new steering components, I don't see how you could, but maybe someone else on here has done it..sorry

wbrett1027 is there anyway i can fix that play though?
08-05-2009 04:20 PM
jtalar Every lifted Jeep I have seen has some play in the steering, it is probably due to the Jeep being lifted and bigger/heavier tires being installed, you have to keep in mind that it is a Jeep and not some fancy sports car...
