    Do I need an alignment?

    I have an 01 Jeep Wrangler with a 2” lift sitting on 32 MT tires. I feel it pull to the left/right driving highway speeds or driving over any bumps/cracks on the roads will make it swing either to the left or right. Les Schwab said its fine but i don’t believe them. You gotta white knuckle it...

    Control arm bracket bent

    04 TJ 4.0L, stock as far as I can tell. 30.5” tires. Owned it for 6 months. Skidded out in the snow into a curb with my front passenger wheel/tire. My front passenger lower control arm got pretty bent. The Jeep now pulls to the right and to go straight I have to keep the wheel at 10-10:30...

    Track bar tie rod end missing washers

    Long story short; Took the TJ to the shop for an alignment (I know, I know. I could do it myself. But I was in a crunch). ANYWAY, they said they couldn’t do it for 2 reasons. 1) “Track bar is loose” - their explanation was there was play in the tie rod end of the track bar (the driver side...

    Steering wheel play

    I recently replaced all the steering linkage and front end parts minus the ball joints on my 2002 TJ. It is driving fine down the road, but the shop we took it to wouldn't align it because of all the play on the steering wheel. I am new to working on Jeeps, this is the first one I've owned. Can...

    Full door alignment issues

    While an avid reader of this forum, this is my first posting. I purchased a hardtop and full doors for my 97 TJ - no issues with the top or passenger door but the driver's door sits a little high and is making for a hard close/open. A closer look at the clunking noise and it looks like the...

    Do my camber bolts need to be adjusted after installing 4 inch lift?

    Just recently finished up my 4 inch suspension lift by Rough country, I know I’ll need an alignment but I also need my camber bolts adjusted I believe. I don’t know much about how the camber bolts work or how to adjust them, I had to put new ones in because I had to cut the old ones out when...

    Wheel alignment and creaking when turning

    Hello all, I always find the advice this forum gives really helpful. I recently got to the business of replacing my ball joints as they were squealing very badly and audibly. I decided I'd go ahead and replace the steering linkage components, tie rods, and steering damper while I had the axles...

    Jeep Wandering All Over At 50mph After Accident

    Wrote about the accident about a month ago on here, and haven't really been driving too much. But since then, when I take it up to 50-70mph on mostly the highway, it's wandering all over the road. I'm gonna adjust the toe-in sometime this week. Is there anything else I should be worried about?

    Do I need an alignment after replacing control arms?

    Been searching the threads, but I'm seeing mixed answers. Is it necessary (must do immediately) to have a front end alignment after replacing upper and lower front control arms?

    Odd tire wear

    OK, so this is not a TJ specific question and happens to be happening on my daughter's '99 XJ. You guys are very knowledgeable so I thought I'd float it here. I rotate the tires regularly in a "rear straight up to front & criss cross front to rear" pattern. All tires are wearing evenly and...

    Can't figure out what is wrong with my jeep!

    I have an 01 Jeep Wrangler sport(manual). It is on 35's and has a 4 in lift. Every time I shift it throws the jeep to the right really hard. Also it shakes VERY bad and you are never able to keep it straight. It is very hard to control the steering and is getting scary to drive. Another thing...

    Got tips? ...on a lift install...

    Hey all, I am new to the forum and I am installing a 2" BDS lift on my 2000 TJ this weekend. Any tips/tricks from those who have done it themselves would be greatly appreciated. I am also going to attempt to do a toe-in alignment after, so tips there would be great as well.
