2009 JK Rubicon steering locking up
Has anyone had this happen?
I am having intermittent steering lock up when attempting to turn to passenger. It never happens turning driver, I have not been off-roading recently. I do drive dirt roads as well as highway frequently. Steering box, ball joints, power steering all appear to be intact and functioning properly.
I thought it might be the steering stabilizer, it has a significant dent, but that has been removed, and the problem persists.
It is getting more frequent. When it locks up, there is absolutely no turning the wheel. It feels as though something is 'catching', and then finally releases and allows the turn. It's not just hard to turn, it cannot be turned. I let off pressure slightly, stop forward movement, then it releases. I cannot see anything binding under the jeep. I actually stopped in the middle of the road today when it happened so I could look under the jeep, but I couldn't see anything 'binding'.
