need some terraflex suspension help

Hi,

I just added a terraflex leveling kit to my JKUR and I'm noticing that when I go over bumps it will pull the steering wheel. I think left up and right the suspension is moving down. It's not drastic but it's definatly noticable.

I tried reaching out to terraflex twice but got no response.

any idea's?
thanks in advance !

Need to ask...when you installed the spring spacers (leveling kit) did you properly seat each spring in the spring perch? There is only one way the spring will properly seat...

Or axle steer - as the axle moves up and down it also is moved side to side due to the arc "scribed" by the trackbar. It becomes more noticeable as the ride height is increased. Nature of the Beast and unless it is actually yanking it from you grip - pretty much is what it is. If you notice - even on a stock control arm/trackbar the nose makes a little circular movement as you go over a speed hump - raising makes the circle a bit bigger and more pronounced unless you also raise the track bar mount or use an adjustable track bar to lengthen the link.
