So I put on the ruff stuff offest tie rod 2 weeks ago and got an alignment and everything was good to go. Wasn't running ss yet as I was waiting for the new bracket to arrive. Bracket arrives and I put it on tie rod and put on Teraflex SS, measuring lock to lock to make sure the SS wasn't limiting steering. All checks out. While doing this I noticed the driver side jam nut on tie rod was not tight, so I tightened it into place.

More recently I've noticed the JK is pulling to the left and the right. A little more pull to the right consistently, but pulls both directions. I've come to the conclusion I need to replace my stock ball joints as I'm getting a lot of vibration from the front end and I'm sure my 37's have destroyed them. I am wondering if the Teraflex SS is responsible for the pulling since everything checked out during alignment.

Anyone heard any pulling issues related to TF SS? I've heard of the bilstein SS pulling, but not the TF. Any help is appreciated

if your balljoints are done you could be having camber and castor issues.

it sounds like something is going on other than with your steering stabilizer. Something is creating a pull.

if your balljoints are bad start there. If it's still doing it check your toe. it could even be not enough castor.

But since this has come on all of a sudden it's probably worn parts.

Yeah I don't know that my bj's are done, just assuming. I'll check toe again this afternoon when i get out of work.

My castor is set to 6* and haven't had the vibrations before the beefier tie rod. The alignment tech did say he had to correct my camber on front passenger so maybe the bj's are the culprit after all. Everything else I had gone through the day before tie rod install when I rotated tires.

Put down the :beer:....lol

Edit for tech: the stabilizer if the culprit would push it in one direction not both so agree with op that its something else and the timing was coincidence:D

Is this thing on?
haha good call on the :beer:

that makes sense on the ss. I've never had the jeep go left before now, always pulled to the right if at all. Maybe the pull to the left is the ss and the vibration is in fact the bj's ?

I'm going to pull the ss off after work and see how the drive home goes

If the tech adjusted your camber he should not be doing alignments. Or he has special powers.
