Steering wheel was cocked to the right and transmission seemed to be acting peculiar amidst the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) flashing. Trying to find a resolution as I installed an adjustable front traction bar. Any help or hints are gladly welcomed. Thanks

first thing is to center the steering wheel.

^^ That! You need to center the steering wheel. ESC will come on because it's sensing the vehicle driving straight while the wheels are turned therefore making it think you are sliding.

you'll need to get your wheels straight and adjust the drag link coupler to center the steering wheel. A ProCal makes it a lot easier if you are doing it yourself.

Agreed with the 2 above posts. If your wheel is off more than a few degrees, it will trip the ESC light and you won't be able to use cruise control. I had that issue when I hit a stump, it went off as soon as I adjusted the sleeve back to center.

I had the same issues... with 37" tires. I installed reid knuckles, flipped the steering... and now the issue is fixed. If you are having traction control issues, your steering is not setup correctly. Bottom line!
