Man, that sounds exactly like my Jeep. After my lift (2.5") and new 35" tires, it pulled left. I did everything on your list including replacing the right front axle shaft and unit bearing. I also...

Yeah, to be more clear, I'm agreeing with you (although your post helped clarify several things for me -- thanks :) )

I haven't ever really dug into this, though, and was just regurgitating what...

According to the some Jeep engineer whose discussion about this I was reading some time ago, BLD (as opposed to LSD) simply applies the brake to the wheel doing the spinning. The torque isn't,...

Makes sense. Doh!

I like the BLD system. In fact, it's so good that I rarely lock my diffs. With BLD, steering remains good. Only when I need all of the torque applied to the wheels do I lock the...

A couple of times on this thread the comment has been made that TJs have longer springs. It has also been stated that this makes the JK's springs too easy to unseat. Who has had this problem??

Laggy, why do you say that the Tundra has 2 solid axles? I used to own one and it had IFS. Has something changed?

If you don't like the bracket, get new links. But my own experience is that a certain well respected aftermarket company offers links that aren't nearly the quality of the OEM units. I had a set get...

^^^^ what they said. There is no immediate damage done by lifting without loosening and re-torquing. After all, that kind of twisting is what the suspension is designed to do all of the time. When...

If your Jeep pulls left, axle centering isn't typically the culprit; especially with the good alignment numbers. An alignment rack usually measures thrust angle anyway and an off center axle won't...

BillyBilly, since your Jeep's symptoms are different, it would be interesting to hear if it turns out to be an issue with the half shaft or something else. Like you say, those of us who have been...

If this doesn't solve the problem check the tie rod ends, ball joints, and steering stabilizer next. JKs have problems in this area. However I suspect that the dealership would have looked at those....

Usually if it's the intermediate shaft, it will be worse during rough, slow off road stretches. The heat seems to make it worse which makes diagnosis at a dealership more difficult -- though it is a...

I like to camp at Billy Creek SWA when it's the rainy season since it is usually a bit drier country there. It isn't far from Ridgeway Reservoir if you need water, etc. The camping is in unmarked,...

You might ask this over on the JK side. I think that you'll find that most of us on the forums will wave at another Jeep. But we also find that the soccer mom crowd rarely waves, even at other JKs. A...

An AT tire will usually come with a thinner sidewall than a typical 3 ply KM2 so the ride will feel more plush at the same tire pressure. The holes are for studding them...not that a Floridian will...

I wonder if the 3.5" kit included anything in the way of a high-steer (flip kit, whatever) to help the steering. At 3.5" of lift, a high steer kit and something to fix caster (preferably the...

When I did mine, it was difficult to keep the bit from jumping around. It wanted to bite into the cast iron which made it pretty tough. Then I was told that the tapered step style drill bits...

I suspect he said that because many of us are able to recenter our steering wheels after a lift. If you are doing a lift that doesn't offer some way to adjust caster, it is set. The camber is set by...
