@J33PIN - Thanks for the tips. hopefully i'll have time this weekend to check everything. I've never adjusted the pinion angle before. Is it a hard to do?

@dayriesw - THanks. I thought I did. I changed the steering stabilizer from Rancho to OME and that seem to help for a while, then I changed the ball joints and that seem to help for a while. I also had my tires rebalanced and installed Rokmen upper control arms. I was also thinking about changing the front track bar and seeing if that would help. I'll do the dry steering test this week, hopefully I can figure this out.

Easy to adjust if you have double adjustable upper or lower control arms, a little more difficult if you don't since you have to unbolt the CAs, adjust and bolt them back up and check again, but still a driveway mechanic job.

One thing to remember, extending the uppers lengthens the wheelbase and raises the pinion so it can cause some interference with the trackbar, gas tank, shocks, etc. You may not have any issues but its always better to check to make sure that you aren't banging anything after adjusting the angle by cycling the suspension.

Also, try to make sure you are adjusting each side by the exact same amount. 2 turns left side, 2 turns right side. Measure the length of each CA before and after to be sure you are adjusting by the same amount on each side. (if you're properly aligned they may not be exactly the same length in any case, and thats ok as long as the axle is square to the frame, and tension on the mounts is equal)

I have double adjustable uppers and lowers, so if I extend the uppers I shorten the lowers a little to compensate, and I never have to remove the arms to do it, just loosen the jam nuts, adjust the arm, and tighten them back up.

Or you can take it back to Evan. He's a great guy and can probably do it in about 30 min.

Just picked up the Currectlync Steering System. I hoping this fixes the front-end shaking.

I've never installed one of these. Are they hard to install?

It's pretty straight forward. Install everything loose at first.

Can you install it with the wheels on the ground?

I bet you can, but to do the alignment you're going to need to get the front tires off the ground

It's been awhile. I did install the Currie steering with the wheels on the ground. I think it took me about an hour.

Hopefully next week, i'll have new gears(Yukon 4.88) installed and a set of 35's. Also adding 1" coil spacers and extended bumpstops for now. I'm debating on metalcloak fenders or 4" currie springs + BL + MML. I want to try and keep it LCG.
