Poly Performance...LOL

Marcus
Poly Performance? More like stupidface performance.:D

When i got my PSC steering, i rebuilt / reinforced the currie track bar bracket. My drag link was hitting the ram, so i got the synergy high steer drag link. That throwed my steering geometry off something fierce. When i would hit a bump, man, my jeep didnt know which way it wanted to go. So, today, i cut off the stuff i put on originally when i did the PSC, and built the bracket so that my track bar would be parallel with the drag link. It drives 200% moe better. I flexed it and everything looks like its going to clear everything.

Ok. I see three bars in front of the axle making a z shape
1, sway bar
2, school me
3, clue me in
Still dont see any difference between the first and last pictures.

The top of the Z is indeed the sway bar, the diagonal gray bar is the drag link, and the bottom of the z is the sway bar.

The difference in the first and last pic is the track bar. Its behind the drag link (diagonal part of the Z). In the first pic the track bar is not prallel with the drag link. In the last pic it is parallel with the drag link. The drag link and the track bar not being parallel makes the jeep drive real scary, especially over humps in the road.

1. the tierod goes from wheel to wheel and has the ram mounted to it
2 the draglink goes from the steering box to the passenger knuckle
3. the trackbar is behind the drag link and it connects the axle to the frame so the axle can not move laterally under the jeep.

the top of the z is the swaybar

In the first pic the track bar is mounted low behind the ram. That is causing the drag link and trackbar to not be parallel causing bump steer. In the last pic you can see the trackbar bolted behind the track bar so they are parallel.


edit: stupidface covered it while i was typing

Bump Steer suuuucks. It is scary shit esp when your merging onto the hgwy or hit a nasty roadwork uneven road bump with cars just inches away.

Was this a custom fix? Price?
