I appreciate the info. Its got to be the toe. Since I bent the tie rod at River Rock its been happening. The ESP light is now on too. Thats the first time Ive ever seen it and my Jeeps had 4 different lifts over the last 1 1/2 years. I straightend the tie rod today and thought I had the toe is close but maybe not.
i've never known it to be related to toe, but i guess it's possible. more than likely if it is related to toe, then there is some other compounding factor, i would expect.
toe can be measured easily enough with a long piece of string. i'll try to explain what i think is the more accurate way:
find something that you can tie the string too that is heavy enough it won't move (jack stands work great for this). make the string long enough to span the length of the jeep from bumper to bumper.
place a jack stand, behind the rear tire, just to the inside of it. then, grab the string and walk to the front of the jeep.
move the string in and out so that it just rests just against the rear tire (both halves of the tire - the half on the front of the wheel and the back of the wheel).
once the string is flat against he rear tire, compare the position of the front tire to where you are holding the string. that will tell you how you need to adjust the tie rod to adjust toe.
make sure the steering wheel is centered before you start. and the tires seem to be pointing straight ahead. set toe so that the front outer edge of the front tire is about 1/8" in further than the back, outer edge of the tire.
you will have to check both sides. when you are done, you will have to re-center the steering wheel. once the steering wheel is centered again, you need to re-check toe. repeat until toe is 1/8" in on both left and right tires, and steering wheel is also centered. it might take a few adjustments.
once this is done and you think everything is set, get in and drive a few miles. then re-check everything.
make sure you are on level ground when doing this.
the other way (i think is less accurate) is to just take the string and run it under the vehicle.
again, make sure you are on level ground and the tires are pointing straight ahead, with the steering wheel centered.
measure the distance between the back edge of the front tire and compare it to the front edge. then adjust the toe so that the distance is 1/4" less on the front edge. then re-center the steering wheel.
