  1. Steering Question

    JK Tech Forum
    Would I be better off with a stock pitman arm with my setup? It’s currently a dropped arm. I’ve been getting death wobble, so I was wondering if running a stock pitman arm and lowering my track bar on the passenger side would possibly fix some of the issues.

    So I know there are multiple other threads on this but they all seem to be from like 2010-2016. So I picked up my jk yesterday. Drives well, only 24,339 on it.

  7. JK Caster and Pinion angles, save for driveshaft?

    JK Tech Forum
    I have a 2015 JKUR with the Mopar Stage 3 lift kit and have been trying to improve my steering.
