Factory Track Bar Alignment Thoughts
I just installed a factory Moog track bar for my Jeep as she was showing signs of death wobble and the whole front end felt loose. I'm sure there is more that needs replacing up front (and rear).
Despite that, I am now having alignment issues. I jacked the truck up by the axle, removed the old track bar, installed the new one, and now my steering wheel is cocked about 15-20 degrees to one side when I'm tracking straight.
I didn't mess with any of the tie rods or any other steering components. Could there have been some built up tension/compression in the old track bar that the vehicle was aligned to and now that it was removed and a new one re-installed it offset the steering components a bit?
I will say that when the front end was up in the air I did grab the tire itself and turn it to allow room for my fork to pop out the ball joint. Then after that was removed, I went inside the cabin and turned the wheels straight before letting the Jeep back down on the ground.
I suppose I'll have to pick it back up and adjust it sometime. Just wanted some input to from the ZJ crowd.
