2006 LJ Rubi Steering

Hi all,
I just went up to 35's after regearing to 4.88's. I'm now looking at upgrading my steering. My jeeps all over the road at around 65 mph. I've replaced my tie rod to a rough country heavy duty tie rod. What else do I need to replace to make it more stable.
Thanks.

Post your alignment #'s.
Toe in and caster need to be set properly to avoid wandering and poor handling.

Also, make sure your tires are not over inflated.

X2 to the #3 and #4 posts. Also, did anyone install a dropped Pitman arm?

I am running a sway bar. I think my pitman arm is stock, I'll post a pic. Also, I don't know what numbers I should be checking for. Center to center of the tire, I'm at 64 1/4 inches.

How many miles are on the Jeep? HD trac bar in the front? It's likely the larger tires are exposing issues with bushings or other parts that are now inferior.

130xxx on this jeep. I've had it for 40xxx of those miles. That is a rough country track bar as the stock one got bent on last years Black Gulch trail.

The only thing you can accurately check is toe in.
Measure from the same spot (either make a mark on the tire tread and rotate, or tread lugs work usually), front tires, the front of the tires should be 1/16" to 1/8" in compared to the back edge of the front tire.
If you Google Jeep diy alignment there are pictures.
Likely you have low caster too

Yes that's the factory Pitman arm.
