1994 zj 4.0l awd.

Ok so I have a 4.5 inch short arm and 2 inch spacers. My cross steer kit is trashed so I'm waiting on a cavfab heim joint setup to he delivered. I've been waiting on a full alignment until after all parts are installed.

So I'm having a bit of DW from the front left hitting a bump etc. Due to tie rod play I'm sure. But I'm also having some bump steer like issues. Going through a dip or crest it wants to steer itself. As well as under acceleration the front lifts and it wants to steer away from straight.

My drag link is parallel-ish to the Trac bar. As I was told it needed to be. But then I'm being told I need as drop pitman arm to keep my drag link and tie rod parallel.

How do you guys run huge lifts and still have good steering?

At that lift height you should consider running a long arm lift in order to get the geometry back close to stock. Be sure that all the control arms (front upper and lower, rear CA's) are adjustable.

at that height you really need to fit a track bar drop bracket and fit an extended drop arm to the box as both will be near their operating limits, also if the King pin/Castor angle is too far out it will add to the death wobble.
Have adjustable arms all round on my 3 inch lifted ZJ and going long arm with high steer conversion next year once I have all the components gathered, as it looks like I will be fitting WJ axles front and rear so will have to make a rear A frame as well :)
