You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Would getting an adjustable trackbar remedy anything or would it be for cosmetics alone?
Also after getting an alignment with everything fitted on the car,
I need to hold my steering wheel slightly to the right in order to go straight on the highway.
Faulty alignment? or something caused by the BB?

thanks in advanced guys. Im pretty happy with the results
Is it pulling left? Or is the steering wheel not centered. If its just not centered adjust the draglink. If its pulling I would say faulty alignment.

Dont get a drop pitman arm. No amount of lift on a zj requires or even recommends one

sometimes i need to turn the wheel slightly to the right but sometimes it acts normal.
i can't differentiate if its pulling to the left or if steering wheel is off =/ . can the off-centered rear axle cause this?

It shouldn't if it was aligned that way

I've got a 96zj with bb and 31s and mine does the same exact thing. Depends on side of road can go left or right and sometimes is normal... Never even bothered. I've been driving it like this as a dd for a year now and no unusual wear in the tires our other parts do if you can deal leave it. Why waste the money.

Also spent some time tring to fix my electric fan... Only the high works, which is better than only the low, but I want it working properly. The relays are both functioning, I know this because I've switched them and the high still functions. I'm thinking it may be the low temp "sensor" or "switch"... I think these are one in the same.

Is there any 5.9ers out there that have cured this? There is one "sensor/switch" on the upper radiator hose, and one on the lower... I'm wondering which one is which? And are they the same part number at Autozone?

Fitted a new stereo head unit, fixed a loose door trim card (those clips die of old age in the end), wired in the relay to control my roof mounted light bar and fitted a set of reconditioned 703 injectors.

Is it something needed for safety purposes or just a fix?

No it's just because when you adjust the tracbar, you are moving the axle which is moving the point where the draglink is connected to the hub so it is in turn, pushing the steering wheel and causing it to settle sideways.
