So I'm having a hell of a time keeping my steering wheel centered. The esc light comes on and stays on, can't use cruise etc.
I have to plug in my procomp, get out adjust the center all the time. A small crosswind will kick it on. I've tried yo go the hokey pokey steering wheel dance to turn off esc but can't get that to work. Any other suggestions?
4.5" RX lift. Could it be the clock spring in the steering wheel or something?

No definaty not. I tighten the crap out of them everything i adjust them. I have to really careful too because just the slightest turn if the bar while tightening will make it uncentered and I have to start over.

I'm getting a redneck ram steering assist installed right now. We are moving the track bar frame side back to stock and raising the axle side to fit the ram. Also installing a synergy draglink.

It all started on steel bender in moab.
Came off the trail with my wheel about 1/8th to the right.

If you are running a stock front trackbar it could very well be bending. I had a jks first generation trackbar and had the steering wheel constantly off center thinking it was my draglink until the trackbar eventually snapped in half

The only thing stock is my tierod. The rest is chromoly. I'm replacing the tierod with these upgrades so maybe that'll help.

Steering box is good, just rebuilt with heavy duty redneck ram parts.
Anyone know how to disable the ESC ?

The steering wheel dance is not worth it, I have never been able to get it to work after numerous attempts. If I did get it to work it would certainly be an act of divine providence to get it to turn back on with the dance I saw someone else post about installing a switch that turns off the accelerometer in the center console. I have installed it myself if you are interested and can do a little soldering.

I had the same issue. The computer thinks you are in a slide. You need to straighten the wheel from underneath. There is a great utube video that shows you how, but I will try to explain.
There is a rod connected to the steering box, it has a all thread type connector with two bolts in it between the box and the rod end. Loosen these two bolts and spin the coupler to straighten the wheel.
This will take care of the problem.
