IMO the currie system is the best bolt on kit on the market. Rusty's is okay for some parts, but trac-bars and steering are not a good investment from rusty's.

Did you try to go 'over the knuckle' on the driver's side knuckle without drilling it out and getting an insert for it? This would most likely cause a lot of play in the steering.
Nope didn't do the OTK. It was installed in the usual configuration. The DW is caused because ball joint the connects the drag link to the tie rod is not mounted to the knuckle. Thus allowing the tie rod to "roll" when the pitman arm pushes or pulls it.

I had the same issue with mine, I was running a 6.5" lift on my old 90 XJ, and it was good, but same thing, had some worn tie rods, and decided to buy the Rusty's kit and what a crappy deal that was. I spoke witht hem and they suggested a 1 degree toe in, and they said that would help out with the DW, so I was not the only person with that issue, and that was back in 2004 I installed it on my rig. I never found a happy medium with the kit, I eventually sold the Jeep witht hat kit on it, and I know now to never buy one again...
