Drag link ? please help
 
My steering wheel will not center. My adjustment is turned all the way in. I have took to front end shop they cant find anything bent. They said to try the steer box and track bar. I replaced both with the same results. My jeep has been like this for a while. 2002 jeep wrangler 4 inch lift. Any suggestions will be gratefully appericated.

is your axle centered under the jeep?
did you install a dropped pitman arm with the lift? is it installed in the correct way?

the stock steering linkage is long enough to adjust it with bigger lifts than yours. there must be something wrong.

The axle is centered and I dont know about the pitman arm. I bought it already lifted is it possable to put the pitman arm on wrong? If the drag link was about an half inch shorter it would be perfect. If it does not have an drop pitman arm and I installed one wood that make it longer ? Than my wheel would be even more cocked ? Thanks

I had the same issue after I installed a drop pitman arm. I cut off 1/2" of thread, re-tapped the threads to clean them up and it adjusts enough to center now.

Did you have to add threads to the drag link ? I wounder If the pitman arm can be took off and moved ?

I took half inch off and had plenty adjustment. My wheel is now straight thanks. You would think the front end shop would thought of that.
