This came from my little site, but I dont mind sharing at all. Wink

After a lift or alignment your steering wheel can be off.


Im still not sure, but almost everytime Ive ever taken either one of my rigs to get the alignment done the steering wheel is always off center. The only way Ive ever been able to fit it is to do it myself. Wink Its pretty easy and shouldn't really take you more than 5 minutes per attempt. I do say attempt because you really wont know if you corrected the problem is until you take it for a test run.

First you need to locate your draglink. Its the rod that sits just under your steering box. It should have a threaded collar on it.



Loosen the two bolts nuts with a deep socket 15mm socket or wrench.


Now depending on which way your steering wheel is off is going to determine which way you turn the collar.
- If your steering is to far to the left you will turn it counter clockwise as if you were looking at the collar from the passenger side of your Jeep. Anotherwords you would roll your hand forward away from you.
- If your steering is to far to the right you will turn it clockwise as if you were looking at the collar from the passenger side of your Jeep. Anotherwords you would roll your hand back towards you.



Now tighten everything backup to 36ft lbs. After your all done take it for a test run and see if you need to readjust. It normally takes me a few times to get it just perfect. More than half of a complete twist can go from being to far left to to far right. So I would work with half turns unless you are way off.
