Help!!

My 2014 jkur gives me a new problem every week here is my current issue. First of all the steering wheel feel is very light and doesn’t feel super tight. When going over bumps at any speed the steering wheel will shake either left or right and then return to center (not death wobble). Also when going over a bumpy road it feels like the axle is gonna come out from under the jeep. I have brand new tereflex ball joints, brand new precision hubs, rubicon express drag link, rubicon express 3.5 inch sport lift, nitto 37s. Please help and ask questions if more info is needed.

Sounds like you might be running to much air pressure, try 26-28psi and see if that helps. Also, search for Chalk Test and follow those steps to determine the correct psi.

Bump steer and at 3.5 lift you most likely need to do a drag link flip kit

Have an alignment center check your caster. If the caster is off it will cause bump steer which is what it sounds like. With a 3.5" lift, unless you have gone to adjustable lower control arms in front your caster is definitely out of range.

My lift came with a high steer kit/drag link flip but I will look into the caster.
