Sorry it took me a while to get back to your thread! You definately have some excess movement at that frame side track bar bushings, I have no experience with Kevins but harder bushings should help out for sure. The pop in the floorboard/gas pedal....if I had to throw a shot in the dark I would say control arm bushings. The sway you describe sounds a LOT like how my jeep used to drive on short arms, the upper control arms had never been removed from the jeep let alone had a bushing replaced. Needless to say, the frame side bushings were SHOT when I pulled the short arms out to install claytons so long ago.

You might need to unbolt the control arms to see the frame side bushings, but if they are anything like mine were 6 years ago, it's worth it! If you have any slop in the balljoints also, that will cause wandering as well so good thing you're getting it all checked out. Unit bearing is the term for your front wheel bearing assemblies. They wear out like wheel bearings on any vehicle, and have to be replaced if they start to have slop, causing wandering similar to shot balljoints.
Not a problem man, I'm glad you were able to!

For the Track Bar, I agree that that amount of movement is way too much and I am pretty sure that is not helping with some of the slop in the steering. When I back out of the drive way I notice how much lateral movement there is between the axle and the body. To me, that screams track bar. You can just see it move back in forth over the axle. As for the KOR Bushings, there have been a few members on here that run them and have been happy with the lack of movement with them. A video of the KOR bushing movement from a member. (Running a JKS track bar.)

http://vid1103.photobucket.com/album.../VIDEO0008.mp4 - (Thanks Chris!) What do you think about that amount of movement?

For the wondering on the road/highway, I would have guessed that it would be caused by the track bar movement? The "pop" sound is ONLY when turning the wheels or when there is lateral stress on the Jeep/Axle. For example turning out of a parking spot or when taking a turn off an exit ramp on the highway. From what I have been able to see, the Control Arms still look solid. I guess I will find out more when I take the track bar off tomorrow and see what the bolt hole looks like. My guess is that the sleeve is moving around. Not sure how with 100 ft-lbs of torque on it...

So for the final run down list for tomorrow:
  • Checking the Frame Side TB Hole for wallowing - if they are messed up, gonna see if they can do that washer welding thing
  • Try to figure out what is popping, I will show the guys at the shop what I am talking about. Will give them a demo haha
  • Inspect the Ball Joints - IF bad, replace asap
  • Un-Bolt and inspect control arm bushings - IF bad, will have them look at getting RC-X adjustable lower control arms at COST, (they are a RC dealer), but would rather have something other then RC...
  • I will tell them about the unit bearing as well.
  • Replacing the JKS bushings with KOR Bushigns later this week to get rid of the slop

Can worn "incorrectly" tires cause vibrations?

Perhaps you had an issue with your track bar?

Larry - You may have had an issue with your JKS bar. Everyone I have talked to said the JKS sleeves and the KOR bushings were extremely hard to press in.
