Help! New lift kit installed!
 
I had my nieghbor (certified mechanic) install my rough country 3.25" suspension lift kit today. I haven't gotten the front end aligned yet, but the steering wheel is rotated like im turning when im going straight. Any quick fix? or do they fix this when i get it aligned?

They fix it during the alignment. had the GoodYear dealer do mine after I installed my lift, they did a right fine job!

Your drag link needs to be adjusted. It's easy to fix yourself. The whole alignment is easy to do yoyrself. TJ Toe-in Alignment - 1

mine wanders alot and when the wheels are straight the centerline of the steering wheel points to 10 o'clock. Can you take up that much with your toe in write up?

My steering wheel was about a 1/3 of a turn off after centering the front axle with an adjustable track bar. You just need to readjust the sleeve on the draglink. Read the link already provided above or Google a search. Did mine and had it back in line in less than 10 minutes. Of course, the alignment shop will take care of that for you if you need an alignment and are not aligning it yourself (which is not that hard). :thumb:

Thanks Neil! Gonna do that instead of paying the guys at the shop 70 bucks :thumb:
