Ok here we go...... As you know I now have a CJ the problem is it doesn't turn as sharp to the left as it does to the right:dontknow: I disconected the draglink from the Pitman and the pitman arm move more :dontknow: I also lift the front end off the ground and it will turn more with no wieght on the tires but as soon as I put it back on the ground it won't turn as much:dontknow: WTF is going on here

Also check the steering stops. I don't know much about jeeps, but I know on my d44 the stops are adjustable. If you adjust it for too tight a turning circle however you will pop u joints like crazy.

drag link adjustment?


thats where i'd start. if your drooped out, and its find, then your drag link length has changed (from horizontal plane).

Mine is the same way, I'm just too lazy to lengthen it.. even though it would only take 10 min.

My XJ does it too, but it's not so bad. Friken Jeeps. I've never had a vehicle that required so much fiddling, but also never had a vehicle I enjoy fiddling with so much [36]

Enjoy your CJ!

if it has a lift, check to see if it has a drop pitman arm. mine did that after lifting.
