I had a accident a few years ago and ever since, my jeep doesn't steer straight. Jeep has new tires (LTX AT) and front end alignment. Still same problem. I was told my control arm bushings were bad so I replaced with Poly bushing kit. Helped a little Neutral Jeep mostly pulls to the right but when I get on a road that slants towards the median, Jeep pulls to the left. So I know the alignment is good. What else could it be? Could my steering box be bad? I wanna say it leaks fluid. Any suggestions please!

When you park for extended periods of time, do you notice leaks on the ground?

Well, after giving it much thought. I decided to change out the steering gear. I bought a used one for 75$ and 5 hours later my issue was solved. Now the steering is tight and doesn't pull to the left or right. Next, replacing all ball studs.
