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?

The adjuster on the tie rod is loose?

Don't think so. Everything was properly torqued down

Things I would check or do is... switch the front tires side to side, then check to see if your pull either goes away, or pulls to the right... tires will cause a pull on their own. Also check for a caliper dragging not releasing fully...all else fails have it aligned by a shop that does suspension work...they will find the pull.
Good luck!

why would a bent tie rod fix the left pull?

aside from adjusting toe, have you had it aligned... you might have bent one of your c's and that might be causing you some problems. especially if you bent the tie-rod and stabilizer. :whistling:

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