Yesterday and today I went out to the rubi to drive it to work and there was a puddle on the drivers side. Crap!!!! This didn't happen till I took off the cowl to wire some fog lights. I decided not to wire them up and closed it up and put all the screw back and now I have a leak. Any suggestions!!!!

When I got home it was sprinkling and I didn't have much time. I found that one of the screws and washer on the windshield side had a gap and didn't cover the hole. I grabbed some silocone and reset the screw and washer and the hole was then totally covered. I hope that this does the trick. Of Course the weather dudes were way off and we didn't get any real rain or snow. oh and they did call for 5 inches. WOW I haven't driven this one in the snow yet and I am still waiting.

You should really get rid of the drop pitman arm on the TJ.

Drag link and track bar need to be parallel and in the same plane. Dropping one (drag link) and not the other changes this. Bump steer is a result.

Do some research on bumpsteer and drop pitman arms. I thought it was common knowledge that the drop pitman arms supplied in some lifts are worthless.

I'm sure others have explained it a whole lot better than I can. As the axle moves up and down it follows the arc set by the trackbar. The drag link needs to follow this same arc as closely as possible. If it doesn't, unwanted knuckle movement or steering wheel movement will result as the suspension cycles.

I am planning on getting a Currie setup up front. It does ride ruff but oh well. but when I hit a bump the steering wheel can jerk out of my hand. I am sure it isn't a death wobble. I guess when the funds are available I will order that and a standard pitman then.

That's what bump steer will do. It's very different than death wobble. Sounds like you're on the right track. Good luck with the rest of the build.

Might as well get a pitman arm in the mean time. They're literally $20 online brand new for the stock (non-drop) one. It might help some of the issues you mention before you spend the $500 on the Currie steering system.
