Your thrust angle is way out, almost .20 degrees from spec and .40 or so from completely straight. Anything over spec -.25 to +.25 will create a push. The pull to the left you feel is actualy the rear end pushing the rear to the right.

Also your front end is specs says the front end pulls right as well (very slighty so you wont notice this casue of the thrust angle being out so far). So thats whats giving you the crooked felling. Your dog tracking basicly. Your rear wheels, to go straight, sit to the right of your front wheels, but you have to turn the steering wheel right to go straight. Soon as you turn the wheel back to the center position your rear wheels push the rear end out making the vehicle go left.

Have your axle in the rear aligned. Mind you its expensive but going to be well worth it unless tires lasting or having the vehicle not pull/push is not a concern. Not to mention you will never get an alignment perfect in the front till you do. then have them re-align the front as it will need it. You just changed how the vehicle travels down the road, your front end will be messed up again.

Would replacing bushings be best for the rear? And how the hell can you have the rear adjusted? There is no adjustment...

Whoops, yeah im thinking leafs since there more common. Forgot WJ's dont have leafs in the rear. And we had just done this to a truck at school which is why its fresh in my mind. So yeah back to the bushings, start there and replace them. That should help.

Have a 4x4 shop that does alignments do the final alignment when you get it all in there. And sorry on the confusion. We pull so many cars in at school while we learn all this stuff its hard to remember sometimes what has what on it with out seeing it.

Its all good. I have a lifetime alignment from firestone. Between their numbers and you guys I'm sure I can get it aligned good. Thanks for your help. I'll get some rear control arms so I can mess with it. Thanks man!

the bolts are the same size bolt, only longer. would probably have to use washers but no big deal. also usually rear specified arms are longer, but they should work if theyre adjustable.

Okay so, I went to go check my oil. I noticed the dipstick wasnt all the way in the tube. So I have a little bit of oil on my intake manifold. No big deal. I go to add some more oil and this is what I find in my fill tube.



This nasty yellow green stuff. I thought at first it was maybe a blown head gasket but I have no other signs of that. Its like a jell. It just smells like oil. Maybe its oxidized oil? Its normally orange/brown right there. So I added some oil. I dont know what to think of that. Any ideas?

I saw your thread in the main forum and responded there but, it looks like gunk from condensation mixing with oil in the crank... generally due to not letting the motor reach operating temperature, like driving real quick to a store or something.

Very nice looking rig, btw
