So I just had my 3rd alignment in 6 months done and it still is not right. The Jeep tracks fine but the Adjustable Track bar just is not right. I specifically asked each time and was assured it would be right. But the jeep turns a lot sharper to the left than the right and the tire also scrubs when at full lock when turning left. Prior to the install of the Adj. Track bar & Adjust. Front control arms the tire did not rub. And the turning was fine.
Can anyone offer any input. I am going to adjust the Track Bar to make it right but will it need to be re aligned if I adjust the track bar?
Do you have an aftermarket SS? If that is not adjusted correctly it will change the amount of steering input you can do.
Also its really easy to set the trackbar yourself. Unhook the axle side and push and pull on the jeep. Then just adjust the trackbar so that the bolt fits the best. You dont need a new alignment to get a track bar.

I would check this too. The shaft on the SS must be centered within the shock with the wheels straight on the Jeep. Itís easy to overlook but a very important step to avoid differences in turning radiuses.

You also run the risk of blowing the seals if it overextends or over compresses.
Ok I am going I try to answer all replies in on post. Thank you all for the input.
I have the sheet for the adjustment will have to find it. Yes I have and aftermarket steering stabilizer installed it has been on of a about 6 months with zero issues after install. Also the wheel an tire combo has been installed for about 8k miles with zero scrubbing issues. I am certain the axle is a little off center but the tire rubbed on the front lower control arm (Rock Krawler). I did not know that about the SS being centered and all goo info thanks a lot. I am going to check it. I can re enter my wheel should it need it done it a few times already.
Also who is doing your alignment? Lots of standard shops don't get it right by just hooking it up to a machine. They may try to get the jeep back into stock settings but if you changed alot of things in your suspension it doesnt always add up right. Had this problem with acouple shops until I found one that dealt with off-road vehicles almost entirely. Was alittle bit more expensive but way worth it.
