AEV Geometry Correction Kit, Anyone Tried?
 
I installed a Rock Krawler 3.5 inch entry level kit on my JKU a while back and as expected it made my alignment a little out of whack. I've taken it in and had it aligned but its still off a tad. It's not terrible but just having it off bugs me, plus my ESP will kick on when on a circular on/off ramp.

I know most people go with adjustable control arms but I simply don't have the money to do the front and back right now, but do plan on doing it down the road.

In the mean time I saw this by AEV
AEV / Nth Degree NTH20410AA - AEV / Nth Degree Geometry Correction Front Control Arm Brackets for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
and was curious if anyone is using it or has had any luck with it.

When I put a 4" lift on my rig, the only thing I had to do to fix my steering (and ESP) was put in an adjustable track bar, correct the toe, and do an alignment. And center the steering wheel. Is your steering dead center? I drove without any ESP problems on a 4" lift and no adjustable track bar with a centered steering wheel. I had some flightiness which is why I added a track bar, but no ESP issues.

What I don't like about the AEV design is it with their control arm brackets is it takes away a little ground clearance.

My steering wheel is dead center and the ESP will still kick on, if I play it safe (hit the ESP button and drive slow and meticulous, I can usually avoid it, sometimes it still kicks on though). I have an adjustable track bar, the one that came with the kit.

I agree, I dont like that it is going to change my clearance mildly but I can deal with that.

Well? Did you install it? If so, what happened?

By the way, the ESP can be disabled. We chose to do that, even though the ESP system is a tremendous safety feature when it is operating properly.
