I think you are right. There is no ONE thing that will cause DW. I say this because a lot of people blame only a loose track bar. Now I know a lot of you are going to call this BS but. I travelled 8 miles without a front or rear track bar in a friend's newly lifted ZJ.
With NO DW.
I must admit it was quite a task. I had to turn the steering wheel a full turn before the Jeep started turning.
This Jeep had a DW before we installed the lift. The kit was a RE 3.5 lift. I suspect that the lower CA's rubber bushings were shot. The DW only occured when bracking in a turn.
Now for the reason
why I travelled without the Track bars. We had an alignment shop install the lift but the rear track bar bracket and the front track bar was for a LHD Jeep
. I had no choice but to drive it back to our workshop and do some fabbing work.
You should look at each component sepperately one at a time. A lift just amplifies any dormant problems.
As for the upper control arm rubber. Currie manufactures a Johhny Joint weld on replacement.
I want mine replaced with that as well.
