ESP/BAS light and Crooked steering wheel

Shit! after wheeling niagara rim, my steering wheel is crooked and my esp/bas light is on. also, after cold start-ups, my traction light comes on and off in stages of 5 seconds and i can feel the vehicle braking. also, when i start it up, i have to press the traction button twice to engage trac. control again.

any thoughts? my drag link looks slightly bowed toward the front of the vehicle, could that be the problem, or are they slightly bowed from the factory?

its an 08 4 dr rubi with RC 3.25" lift and 35/12.5/15 mud rovers.

Happens 9 out of 10 times when I wheel too. Recentering your steering wheel will take care of the problem with your lights.

Loosen the two 15mm bolts on the drag link turnbuckle. Rotate the turnbuckle until the steering wheel is straight. Retighten bolts. Lights will clear after about a mile.

Happened to me yesterday. All lights were cleared after the steering wheel was centered.
