Track Bar

Before the Jeep left the driveway, we adjusted the track bar to center the axle under the vehicle, set the alignment at 3/8-inch toe-in, then spun the drag link to center the steering wheel. Using an angle finder, we dialed in 6 degrees of positive caster into the front axle by shortening the upper control arm appropriately. The Jeep exhibits excellent return-to-center, has no shimmy or death wobble, and tracks straight down the road. Still, a professional alignment was performed just to make sure.
