Fine at low speeds but once you hit 40 to 45 its crazy maybe need tires re-balanced ordered them offline from 4Wheelparts.

Tell us more about the Jeep. Year? Miles? Suspension upgrades? What tires? Wheels?

Have you had it aligned, if so post up specs. What tire pressure care you running?

Make sure your Drag link and Track Bar are parallel. Make a line between the pivot points of each joint, (ignore all the turns that the bar makes)

I would assume you didn't get a drop pitman arm with your kit. May I suggest a drag link flip kit instead? You can buy an expensive kit, or do it yourself for $60 (52126058AD $50 plus a synergy Drag link flip adapter $10)

First things first. Get an alignment and check tire pressures. You probably don't need more than about 27 PSI in those tires. I ordered a wheel/tire package from TireRack and they came mounted and balanced. Didn't think about it and bolted them on and went for a drive. Thing was all over the road. Got home and the tires had about 60 PSI! Dropped them to 28 and they were fine.

That RC 3.5 comes with a drop Pitman. It also comes with a fixed lower control arm for caster...

Tires at 30psi and get the alignment done. Front toe between .17 and .19. If caster isn't above 4, it might need to be addressed.

Post the print out so we can see...

Yeah, that'll do it! Good luck and enjoy! You should still get an alignment done.

My wheels and tires came mounted from 4wd.com (same company) completely out of balance and the Jeep was all over the place. Doesnt cost much to rebalance.
