lifted my JK the week I bought it, originally a 2.5" BB kit then mutated into a 5.5" lift.
Everything has been great, NO esp problems, I've always kept my wheel centered after every iteration of lift and zero problems.
Yesterday I took a pretty good hit on the tie rod - one of those stupid concrete survey markers in the middle of my yard at about 30MPH (don't ask)
Wiped out the monument, just scuffed the paint on the tie rod - it hit just inside the drivers side adjuster sleeve. But it was a good enough whack to un-center my steering.
I noticed on the way to work this morning that the wheel is off a fair bit, on my way home "ding" esp/bas lights come on. I drove on home, ran a couple of errands. every time I started the jeep "ding".
So I go grab my 15mm, loosen the drag link sleeve give it about 1.25 turns to recenter the wheel, drove for a few minutes and the lights went off
So here's to hoping they stay off.
So far in my experience, keeping the wheel dead on centered seems to be the key
high steer is in the very near future so I'm not done playing with it yet.
