  1. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I just purchased an 89 Wrangler that had the steering column in pieces when I took ownership. I have located all the parts except for the key release lever spring. This is a super difficult part to find and I'm wondering if I can just remove the key release lever from the column all together...
  2. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Has anyone done the IRO over-the-knuckle tie rod? I smashed my steering stabilizer today and now I’m looking to create more ground clearance without a higher lift (budget build, and my garage can’t accommodate a higher lift). I know the Trailforged kit requires a drag link and track bar to go...

    04 LJ 2.5” lift on 33’s. No issue tracking when vehicle has 3/4 tank of fuel or less. When tank is full drifts left & right on pavement. Can I add weight to front end to improve?
  4. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hello all, I'm new here and I have an issue that I need some opinions on. I recently took my '99 XJ in for several new parts: -drag link -tie rod & ends -upper and lower ball joints -steering damper/stabilizer -track bar I bought a kit with all the parts and had a shop replace them since they...
  5. Jeep CJ Forum
    Good day I have a 1984 CJ7 Renegade and I would like to have tilt steering for my kids. I have some post and looked at some options but nothing definitive noted. Does anyone have any suggestions that work with out fabrication and relatively easy installation as I’m a novice. Thank you for any...
  6. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I found a issue with my drag link to steering knuckle, so I will have to take care of it and it may mean I will need to replace the drag link and/or the knuckle. That leads me to the question, since I have a 4" lift, is the stock steering setup adequate (drag link from the pitman to the right...
  7. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hi all, I finally got my 5.3 LS set into the my 79 CJ7 using Novak motor mounts. For those who have done an LS swap and kept the factory steering box, what power steering lines did you use? Do any off-the-self lines fit, or did you have them made? I have no objections to having custom lines...
  8. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I bought a 99 XJ Sport last year to fix up with my son. I’m currently experiencing front wheel bind when turning, enough to make the wheels hop when turning more than 50% like I’m in 4wd. I’ve already replaced a lot of the common causes and the 4wd indicator isn’t on. It has no problem...
  9. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Back in late August I was getting some really bad Death Wobble problems on my '03 TJ (4.5" lift and 35" tires if it matters) that I did not have the time to diagnose and fix. Eventually, I bit the bullet and brought the Jeep to a 4WD shop. They told me that my track bar and drag link needed to...
  10. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Howdy all, I just installed a new steering linkage package on my jeep. I noticed the draglink knuckle is rubbing the stabilizer bar link when turning right. Anybody find a possible fix for this? I do not have weld equipment and I tend to try to fix things myself so preferably methods that...
  11. Jeep CJ Forum
    hi I was wondering if anyone knew what column this is. I don't know if stock cj7s came with tilt columns or not but I need to know to I can get a new ignition switch and an adapter for a quick release. because it doesn't look like its a tight fit and there is that tiny gap in the back
  12. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 2015 JKUR with the Mopar Stage 3 lift kit and have been trying to improve my steering. After installing new ball joints, tie rod and drag link I got an alignment and found my caster was only 3.2 degrees. My lift kit doesn't have adjustable control arms, so I was considering replacing my...
  13. Engines & Drivetrain
    Lately I have been experiencing a loud pop when turning left or right. It is just one singular pop, I checked and everything is tight. When turning the wheel (and you are in the engine bay) the popping seems to be centered around the steering box, so it could be the pit man arm tie rod, or the...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    My TJ has developed some play in the steering wheel. Not a lot, but enough to where it's becoming a concern. I've noticed I have the exact same issue as the guy in the video below. I don't know if that much play, if any, is acceptable. I would think very little if any? My question is what...
  15. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hey guys, i've got a new to me CJ5 that has a small lift on it. One of the first things i want to fix besides the fuel leak on the filler tube is the steering. It's got a bit of bump steer shimmy going on and i was thinking it might be the bushings need to be replaced, however after closer...
  16. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hey all, I recently lifted my ZJ (95 Laredo 4.0) with the rough country 3.5" lift kit (front lower control arms/bushings, extended coils etc.). Since I was doing the lift I decided to do a whole front end rebuild as I was tearing it apart anyway. I am experiencing issues with steering and...
  17. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hey everyone, Is it necessary to replace both the tie rod and drag link at the same time? I have a tie rod to replace but not a drag link? Will this be an issue? the Link has very little play while the Tie rod has too much. Any suggestions are appreciated!
  18. Jeep CJ Forum
    84 CJ7. Replaced everything on the front end this winter. I mean everything (everything torn down to knuckle and replaced and all new rods and steering damper. Used quality parts and proper torque. PO had installed OME 2.5 lift springs with Bilsteins. But he had crazy extra long low quality...
  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I've seen a handful of threads that discuss drilling out the stock power steering gear box for hydro assist steering, and have yet to see anything about negative repercussions of doing this. Based on the fact that most people are willing to pay decent money for aftermarket gearboxes when they...
