Hay Guys, was out driving yesterday to do some trails in the tahoe national forrest and when running at 50 to 55 on the road the front end gets waggy. She starts moving from left to right and the over steer which is substantially better with the new steering box was improved but...
could this be tire allignment, have never had it done?
a few details, she is a 79 cj-5 with I-6 and 35 tires with 1 in body lift, pretty much stock from there. any suggestions?
While we were out yesterday running around the trails in the TNF, some guy comes flying around a blind corner on a dirt road and nails us head on! Ouch, no body injured, stoved in the front of his ranger to the radiator, and bent my newly inslalled front bumper..... bummmer. Guy was going about 30 and we were just pooping along at about 10 in granny and bam!!
I have a 77 cj 5 with a built 360. . Stock height, running 31/10.5/ 15 tires. I installed power steering, new tie rods, new ball joints, new spindle bearings, new front axle universals and had an alignment done. Before this, she wandered a lot. After I can drive at 65 with one hand down the highway. Almost every weekend, we run 1:45 min ride to the beach, all highway. I love driving it now! It dives better than my 2005 F250. That thing has terrible bump steer. The next thing is the breaks.
Well makes sense, guess I need to look further into front end parts like tie rods, ball joints, etc.
She starts to wander at 55 mph and at 60 she is hitting the lines on both sides, back and forth.... firm grip, two hands and if I have to avoid something, uh-o
Any how the head on crash suppriesd me how well the jeep took a hit, but the ford ranger had a crushed in front end all way to the radiator which was leaking from hitting the fan, glad it was a off road so the other guy was going probably 30 mph, any how have to do another bumper replacement.
