  2. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    My jeep goes in Aug 25 for steering gear replacement. Two years of filling out FCA surveys on customer satisfaction I finally received a call from jeep engineer in Detroit a week ago Friday. Let me assure you there is something wrong with your jeep steering the engineer said so. He has driven...

    Dealers also have to watch out for how many warranty claims they have. They have set amount their allowed. If they go over, corporate comes down on them hard. Leading to everything they do warranty to be approved ahead of repair or its out of the dealers pocket. Could be why some dealers are so...

  7. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    In time we will see someone figure it out. For now we shall just keep replacing part by part and trying different combination of fixes to achieve goal. Like others have said its just to bad we have to fix out of our own wallet, when it should be warranty work.
  8. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Well its been two years plus still no one solution for the jeep JL's or JT'S with steering issues from FCA. I have been watching this thread since October 2018 and noticed lately a drop in responses from Jeep Cares to offer help. It also seems that from some of the comments lately that dealers...
  9. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    FCA has no intention of having a recall. As stated before in these threads it would be to expensive to replace gear boxes. They have gone down the path of individual lawsuits and found it cheaper. As long as Jeep sales are great, no cause for concern. It is true that out of the number of JL's...
  10. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    First check tire pressure, bring it down to 32 to 34 psi. Put Mopar 2'' lift lower control arms on. Have alignment done to bring toe in to max setting. See if you can them to put updated track bar on and latest stabilizer shock on. There are some who said some of new Rubicons may already have...
  11. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I also replaced LCA's on my stock Rubicon made it better but not perfect. Dealer did alignment under warranty brought toe-in to max. All I can say is steering is tolerable. Checked part numbers at dealer for new track bar they said they were back ordered so no sense to bring for service. Drag...

    Dropping pressure will help a lot to bad you drove all the way to Keys like that. Tire pressure might have got as high a 45 pounds or above. If you have read any of this thread when you go to dealer have them re torque ball joints. Also toe in on alignment. Drive it then if still not right you...
  13. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Check your tire pressure 34 to 35 pounds. They look overinflated in picture.
  14. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Sad to hear Dusty Camaro about new steering box. Glad to hear the success Paul Hess had with his. This all leads to one question "What is the real solution?" On Sunday installed Falcon 2.2. I really was hoping that with the Mopar 2' LCA's, wheel alignment, 1/8 turn on gear box and tightened...
  15. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    When putting final torque, the bushings will be in a neutral position when jeep is on the ground. If you torque with jeep lifted you will be over stressing bushing when jeep is landed thus leading to possible suspension squeaks and premature bushing failure. When fully torqued in the air you...

  17. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Try going back a sixteenth and find happy medium between city and highway speeds. There are so many variables at work here, software, calibrations, tolerance and possibly gear box fluid temp issues. Beyond frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!:angry:
  18. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I'm with Chewi adjusting gear box was the last thing I wanted to do. It seems finding a dealer to take you seriously is like finding a needle in a hay stack. I'm sorry I take that back, finding a manufacturer of a product, to stand behind it and make it safe is like finding a needle in a hay...
  19. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    LCA installation is easy. My torque specs show 103 ft pounds and 145 degrees more. Do not fully torque till you have jeep on ground.
  20. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Was informed dispatcher/service manager is to find this information. Seems to me lots of people in dealers like mine don't want to be bothered. Anyway if your handy with wrenches you might be able to help yourself. I put Mopar 2" lift lower control arms on made it 75% better. The dealer did do...
