Self Alignment How To?


Recommended Posts

basically. loosen up the adjuster sleeve, measure the distance between the back of the tires, then measure the distance between the front of the tires, and adjust it until they are 1/8" toed in which means the fronts are closer than the backs of the tires. you can use a pipe-wrench to turn the tie-rod in order to adjust it.

 

then use the adjuster sleeve on the draglink to adjust the steering wheel to center (while the tires are facing pretty damn close to striaght ahead)

There it is.... Thanks Eagle :bowdown:

 

Quick question: I see in markus' write up that he adjusts the alignment while the jeep is on the ground, is this the proper way to do it? I was thinking of jacking it up to put less stress on the adjusting sleeves - or am i crazy? :nuts:

Not really a problem, but if you're working on a concrete floor, just sprinkle some speedy dry where the tires will be before you pull the vehicle into position. The speedy dry will act like little ball bearings and allow the tires to "scrub" easier on the concrete.
