are you trying to say that it would actually stay in the same lane when you hit a bump and it would not set off the esp when you are in the fast lane on 95 by Fremont St...

When I first lifted my zj I had it on the 95 and my track bar wasn't adjusted correctly. The scariest f in thing that has happened to me in that jeep. I seriously thought I was going to die.

That is pretty ballsy to drive with a effed up TB. I forgot to tighten mine down once and I was bouncing all over the place. I thought there was an earthquake.

My first lift install. I read on the install instructions to bounce it up and down on a level surface then adjust the track bar as needed. It was way off. I grabbed a tape measure and squared everything out and haven't had a problem since.

The 95 was way worse in the 90s, it was like driving with hydraulics on the ride!

My dad used to fly through it in our huge econoline van. It didn't have seat belts and we would fly around. It was our favorite part about going to our grandparents house.

The first time I hit it on the fast lane I thought I was going to die. See the nice thing about the JK is when the esp kicks in, it kills the throttle and starts applying brakes. Not a very good thing to do on 95 when you are surrounded by traffic on all sides and being tailgated. Now I just speed up enough to give a few care lengths between me and the a$$ clown behind me.

I don't think the dips on the 95 are that bad. If you've ever been across highway 52 in san diego that's gnarly! You can sometimes catch people shooting sparks out the back of cars... Here's a picture that somewhat does the dips on that freeway justice. It's your normal 65mph speedlimit and people sometimes catch air there.

That's like the traction control on the Z06 corvettes! When the computer senses wheel spin, it applies the rear brakes to slow the wheels. It's commonly misunderstood that the engine speed is reduced, but it's actually brakes applied! Rear pads and rotors probably sell like hot cakes!

Edit: the new corvette tcs use both brakes and timing retard to slow engine speed as well. I had read in a road and track article that they used only brakes. Either it changed, I didn't correctly comprehend what I read, or it was that way on earlier model years. I stand corrected by myself!

I know the feeling, I thought I was wrong once...but I was only mistaken.
