I bought a 2012 Rubicon several weeks back w/ about 100k miles on it. Got new stock tires, the mud terrain BF Goodrich - cold 36 lbs. The warranty on it covered and replaced the ball joints. Now it rides much better than before. However, it still feels like I need to do more work to keep it running in a straight line on the highway than I would normally expect. The dealer checked it out, and had aligned it. I took it back last night and they said it looked fine. Suspension is stock except for Zone shocks. The mechanic said that Rubi's tend to wander a little bit.
The vehicle tends to sort of gyrate diagonally if I am adjusting to a curve or hit a bounce in the road or a good wind. I realize a tall square vehicle like this will behave that way, especially due to wind. But it just seems like it should not travel this much. I'll post some pics of the front-end as I'm guessing someone is going to ask.
