Very Poor Handeling??

I was Just wondering why my Jeep has so much play in the steering, It sways and wonders from one side of the road to the other everyday. I have a steering stabalizer and the track bar is tight. So is the play just in the factory Y-Type steering setup. Would it help if I upgraded to a Knuckle- to -Knuckle setup instead. If so, what kind?

Is your front end aligned? I would check that first and make sure your tires are not cupped. I had mine do that when i first bought it and the tires were so cupped the jeep wandered all over the place

i would say check the steering shaft, and then your alignment.

if you have alot of play in the steering wheel itself (like i did) the jeep does wonder all over the road.
