Hey guys, my tj has a 3" zone lift with stock control arms. it pulls right consistently, sometimes worse than others. I have had two alignments in six months. I started doing some more research, but couldnt find anyone with similar symptoms. It pulls whether im going 20 mph or 70. I am hoping that the caster is off (so i can justifly buying rokmen arms) but i don't think it could be off enough with only a 3" lift to cause this much pulling. One other note is that I still have the stock track bar. although the mount has been redrilled, the right side tire sticks out slightly more than the left.
I dont know how to measure caster myselft as i have not been able to find any clear instructions on how to do so.
Any advice is welcome
Worn control arm bushings can cause axle shift which would pull. My old Rubicon Express arms had this issue as did most of them. Not always noticeable until the arm is taken out and the bushings inspected.
Caster isn't the problem.None of my 8 Jeeps did that and the caster isn't adjustable on stock CAs.All of mine had stock CAs.The toe is the only thing adjustable up front and takes 10 minutes to do it yourelf.

I dealt with mysterious alignment issues with a few jeeps before, had gone thru two allignments before I found out that the lower control arm on one side was aftermarket and was 1/16 in longer causing the pull.. check that out maybe.
i dont have a dropped pitman arm and the toe in was 1/16 of an inch. My front axle is not centered, although i redrilled the mount for the track bar. My right tire sticks out a quarter inch more than the left tire. Could an adjustable track bar solve the pull, or do my problems sound more like something a pair of rokmen ajustable lowers could fix.
Bumpsteer and pulling are two different things with different causes.
I am aware. I wasn't saying that he would fix any bumpsteer, I was saying that he would fix his pull. That was exactly my issue when I had a sharp pull to the left. I had it at all speeds just like he does and it was consistent. I installed a stock pitman and it cured it immediately. Too bad he has his stock pitman... That would be the easiest fix to identify I would think.
