nocked fron axle out of center?

was out romping in the snow last night and got a jolt and a bang and now the jeep feels like it tracks wrong. checked out the track bar and it looks good, axle appears like 1" to the passenger side... any ideas?

thanks
Frank

Broken frame mount or track bar is the only thing that will do that.

Check your measurements (lift height and the position of the axle), maybe your springs sagged a little since you last adjusted the TB.

If it's 1" more to the passenger side and tracks differently, then something moved or broke.........

It's not rocket science.

Well you did something to knock it out of whack, and the trackbar is what locates the axle side to side. If it's an adjustable bar, just adjust it back to where it should be.
