I have an 05 X with a D35 rear axle. My Jeep has always drifted towards the left. Recently I got a new set of Coopers to replace my GSA's (which cured the death wobble) and had an alignment done at Firestone. Anywho, Firestone said that my rear axle is off 0.56 degrees on the right rear tire. They gave me 3 options on why... (1) I hit something when wheeling and bent the axle tube. (2) My 2"BB caused the problem when it was installed. (3) It was wrong from the facory. Now, I don't wheel the Jeep super hard and don't remember banging the axle, and I also don't see how the BB could have caused this, which leaves option 3. Has anyone else out there had this problem? Jeep won't cover it beacuse they say I caused it. If it is a bent axle tube, how hard is it to have it fixed and how much should I be looking to spend? If it makes a difference, when I replaced my original tires, the right rear wore much more quickly than the rest. It was almost bald at 13K miles. Any input would be appreciated. Thanx in advance guys.
