Re-centering steering wheel...?

Does anyone know how to re-center the steering wheel?

I heard it has something to do with adjusting a bolt near the sway bar...

Thanks!

On the drag link, there are two bolts holding an adjuster sleeve... loosen them up and turn the sleeve.

X2 it is really easy to do. I'd leave the adjuster bolts loose, drive down the road, stop every few hundred yards and make adjustments as necessary, once you are happy tighten the bolts back up.

X3 pretty easy. I just bring a ratcheting wrench with me. and when i like where it is i jump out and tighten it up. only takes a minute. can take a few runs though to get it to where you like it.

Cool diagram. I am saving that one. It is so much different owning a Jeep. Before, I just took my vehicles to a mechanic to have crap checked out. With the Jeep, I find myself actually interested in learning to do things for myself.

It's actually a TJ in the picture, but the locations are still the same.
