My 02 Jeep TJ sport has a 4" short arm lift, 33x10.50R15 BFG A/T tires, and recently Ive replaced the steering box (or rather had my mechanic do it). Ive replaced the shocks (they would compress with one hand and NOT expand) but Ive yet to do the stabilizer.
It does steer a bit better than before (with the new box) but it still seems fairly loose. I DO have a drop pitman arm, but I did notice after my steering box was changed, that the pitman arm was NOT overly tight on the bottom of the box (you could see the 'splines' on the box) whereas on the old box you couldnt.
Could that be the issue? I asked my dad (who has a mostly stock 99 Sport) and he says that its normal to be set up like that.
I will be replacing the stabilizer shortly (tommorow, hopefully) and hopefully someone can provide me somewhere to begin with this issue here. I do have the stock Pitman arm, but I really dont want to try changing it...
