OK, back on topic. Thank you ALL. I got the stock pitman arm back on and I even straightened out my Anti-rock. She's all good to go...

You were saying that the drag link sleeve was maxed out so you couldnt recenter the steering wheel. When I did this upgrade on my jeep, I had to cut about an inch off the end of the rod end that connects to the pitman arm so I could tighten the drag link sleeve some more and recenter the steering wheel. They actually mention that on the currie website about this steering system. Did you already try that?

No I didn't try that Marlowequart...and I can't find where they say that in the Currie website. Can you send me a link to it? Thanks!

I don't know about it being on the Currie sight or not, but I had to do the same.

Then again, I have a bastardized, flipped knuckle, RHD TJ...

But, it's the only one exactly like it!

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Obviously if the drag link TRE shanks bottom out inside the adjuster and you need the link to go shorter, then you'll need to trim the shanks......

Heres a shot i took of the currie website for the CE-9701. I know it says its a direct replacement and ment to be used on jeeps with 4" lift. I have 4.5" lift, and I couldnt get the wheel recentered, but I knew it had to do with the drag link sleeve. I dicked with it for a while before I saw that on vehicles with less lift you might need to trim the ends. I trimed the end so I could tighten the drag link sleeve more and it worked. Once I got that figured out I have been happy with it, except that my damper maxes out before I get to the right rail. Havent had time to try and find a smaller one.

Thanks man! I have a 3.5 lift but almost looks 4". Once I went back to the stock pitman arm everything lined up. I also just bent my tie rod a bit. I'm gonna buy a black iron pipe and glide it over the tie rod. A buddy of mine did that and works great for him.
