Front axle slightly off center after lift

Hi All,

I did my lift and have an adjustable front trackbar that I have tried to get a perfect centering.

Now it is off to the drivers' side about .25 inch. When I adjusted my trackbar one turn, it was off to the passengers' side.

I have two questions:

1. If the front is slightly off center, is there a preferred side to make it slightly off center? Should it be further out on the drivers' or passengers' side?

2. To center the steering wheel, is it the short sleeve near the steering box that needs adjusting?

THANKS! Joe

Alright, well as far as centering your front axle, it should be a matter of adjusting it until the axle is centered. May just have to disco the track bar from the frame or axle, doesn't matter, and wiggle the jeep, should center itself out, (works sometimes) or resort to using a ratchet strap to pull the body one way or the other.

And as far as centering the steering wheel, it's gonna be the drag link, which is the rod going from pitman arm (steering gear) to the passenger side wheel (knuckle)
