I feel the JJs hold the front axle in place tighter . I have noticed less steering correction required when driving on roads that have very uneven surface with the JJs Vs Mc's . Its not a lot but I do notice the difference . Offroad you would never feel the difference and would go 100% Mc if that was all I used the TJ for but that's not the case .

Pretty much the same thing. Most of the jeep is sitting on the left side. The passenger side tires are still poking out about 1.5" more the the other side. Hopefully once the trac bar comes in everything will be straightened up

Interesting. I plan to still go with MC lowers front and rear to compliment my MC uppers front and rear.

I'll post if I feel a difference in steering corrections.

Depending on what you are presently running may make it noticeable or not. I went from all OE arms to all Savvy w/JJs then to all Mc's because I wanted a softer ride than I had with all JJs. I then swapped back and forth between the two for a while . I remembered the best this TJ ever had been on the road was when I had my first set of arms with JJs which was lower fronts and OE on all of the other locations . Keep in mind I still have the oe front uppers when I refer to ALL.

Alright well the adj trac bar and arms are on. I went wheelin the other day and got the jeep stuck and had to leave it. But I got it out today and I'd have to say it is a more comfortable drive on the road. I don't exactly remember what it was like stock but I can say that it's a more comfortable ride than what it was since I've gotten it lifted. Haven't exactly tested flexing yet
