Alignment issues after Teraflex 2.5'' budget boost installation

Hi anyone dealt with issues regarding alignment after installing the teraflex 2.5'' budget boost. Ive had my car aligned three times in the past few days and the alignment keeps going off and the steering moves off center everytime i go onto a pavement or rough terrain. The Esp kicks in and the ESP BAS light switches on. Any advice would be highly appreciated!!

Have you checked that all bolts are torqued correctly? BB had no impact on alignment for me.

check out the instructions here:

Honestly to me it sounds like whoever is doing your alignment is not tightening the nuts on the drag link turnbuckle.

The steering needs to be centered, or the ESP/BAS will get confused and kick in. So make sure your steering is centered, and then make sure the nuts on the turnbuckle are tight to prevent it from going off center.

I agree with N2rock... they must not be and put a little pressure on the system and it is causing things to move and the steering wheel get off center.

If you want it done right you have to do it yourself seems to be more true every day. It sucks! Good excuse to get under your Jeep and spend some quality time getting to know how everything works.
