Im not sure. I haven't seen anything yet. I've just started looking and pricing.

I still need to do a dry steer test and see what's actually wrong. But when we installed the locker the only steering we touched was the tie rod and then this started.

I went with XRF brand. A lot of truck guys beat on them and are happy. Mine have held up so far.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Go Spicer. There are some good vendors on eBay. You can get both sides for $100.

Got another question about my brakes. It seems like I'm gathering more dust on my rims? Could bad rotors be causing this? The pads seemed fine.

Gonna be diagnosing my steering this weekend. Do you guys see any reason why I would need my tires on do it? The reason I ask is because I could get them road force balanced while we're looking at the steering.

Tires need to be on the Jeep and sitting on its own weight.

Tires on, motor off. You need something to provide enough resistance (friction of the tires against the ground) to expose any play in the linkage connections.

Okay, that does make sense now that I think about it.

Another question. When I got my wheels and tires they were at 38psi. And I'm guessing they were balanced at that psi. Would running them at 28psi need them to be rebalanced? Basically does the psi effect the balance?

On a very small scale, yes it matters. Will it ever be noticeable? Probably not. Lower them down. Next time, tell them to set them to a certain pressure.

Okay. I have them at 28 now. I'll just tell them not to change it whenever I get them rebalanced.
