When I researched my pull the axle centering came up a lot for people. However, my front axle is off by roughly the same amount as yours and I track straight now. Every Jeep really is different.

yeah, i wouldnt think that the body not being completely centered over the axle would effect the steering as long as the toe in is set right. but thanks for the help, ill keep at it and try to figure this out

Turns out my caster is all screwed up. Took it to a jeep shop and the right side is measuring 3 degrees less than the right

I think you should let them buy you drinks before they screw you.Most alignment shops know nothing about Jeeps and the fact that only the toe is adjustable and NOTHING else needs to be adjusted.

I agree, but this shop is a little bit different. They're specialty is jeeps, and I talked to the owner for a while about the problem. He owns four wranglers including a stretched yj on 1 tons displayed at the front

To lure us in about rock sliders when everyone is drunk for Memorial day weekend,just to hit us with a stupid question about a simple alignment. I'm not trying to be an @$$,but someone is not being honest with you to make money and it's not me..

Dude,you have more wealth of knowledge about anything Jeep right here and you choose to take advice from anyone else.Moderators BAN him for life! I wish on you a 4 banger,auto with A/C and you living in the mountains.

There's a poll because I've never started a thread before and it popped up with that crap so I thought I had to make a poll in order to post a thread. And boogieman, I guess we'll find out in a couple of weeks if my jeep drives straight

Caster is adjustable if you have adjustable control arms

Darn you caught me. I can't read. And if your Mexican speaking buddies were alive, they'd do you no good. I don't speak Spanish either.

For the entire axle they will. Not for each individual side...

Perhaps yours are different but each of my arms adjusts independently. There is no reason I couldn't make one side longer or shorter than the other . . . If I wanted to screw things up.

That wouldn't help any when the caster is 3 degrees different from one side to the other...
