I've been very happy thus far with my 1-ton swap but the one thing that has given me the most issues is the PSC steering. Maybe I'm missing maintenance that needs to happen or maybe, through my research, I didn't notice people saying they have to go through several issues to get the "perfect" part from PSC so thought I'd ask ya'll.
I have this setup which is being used with my Dynatrac XD 60 (no flip kit) and 40" tires.
12-18 Jeep JK BIG BORE XD Cylinder Assist Kit (1 Ton Axles)
Issues that have happened -
1) Steering box has, what is described, as a flat/lazy spot. I've continued to drive on it and, maybe, its gotten a little better but I haven't removed it cause honestly, it was a pain in the ass to put in and my JKU is a daily so being down for 1-2 weeks as PSC rebuilds isn't really in the cards
2) PSC track bar clamp - had several shitty threads on the clamp which we cleaned up. It was all good until the other day when one of the bolt heads snapped offer as the bolt was coming out (literally zero stress on the bolt at the time). Not really anyones fault so bought a new clamp and threads are much better.
3) I have a HIGH PITCHED sound that has started on start up and rev's with the motor. Until it "warms up" my steering needs some rev's to function at 100% which didn't happen before the sound started. I haven't torn it apart but hoping its not the PSC steering pump that came with the kit...however, I feel like its going to be.
Anyone have these issues or continuous issues with their PSC kit? This was a brand new kit which was purchased in Jan 2018 and install Feb. 2018. Fluid used is the swepco stuff they recommend. Am I missing anything in regards to maintenance that needs to happen with these things on a regular basis?
