ECS is killing me

I need some serious help. heres the situation any time I turn right with a little speed my ECS comes on and applies the brake to the right front tire. I have changed the hub assembly because a little bit of play. made sure the abs sensor lines were good. the new hub came with a new sensor. its only when I turn right. the dealership (not very helpful) told me it was the alignment. the dealership did the alignment still doing it. then they told me it was the hub assembly. that did not fix it either. I tried to turn off with the steps I read in this forum and either I did it wrong or it just didn't work.

2013 Wrangler unlimited sport 35" tires
Please any advice will help

By chance is your steering wheel not centered?

I would start looking at your pitman arm and drag link. Perhaps there's play in one of the pieces.

Edit - or a tie rod end.

Did you have your steering wheel disconnected, like the shaft from the steering box, recently? Perhaps the steering wheel rotated while disconnected.

Edit - or the more obvious question.. is the steering linkages hitting something when you turn it to the right?

The axle being way off center can also cause this and possibly your steering not being even to both sides.

im going to take it back to the dealership and have them reset everything to center I think the alignment was done incorrectly. the steering wheel was not set to center and that is whats causing it. even when im going straight the electric steering thinks im in a right turn so when I turn the wheel it thinks im making drastic maneuvers.

rjcobs is correct. If you're track bar has your axle out of adjustment, that could do it too.

I'll play Tom Magliozzi ... I'm betting it's the steering wheel not centered and you're going to find a mechanical issue with the drag link.
