Hey everyone. Just got my Jeep back from getting the MC game changer, and synergy HD steering kit. I’m noticing some bump steer sourcing from my passenger side. I say passenger side because I’m getting wheel kick only when I hit objects on that side. I checked out my drag link and the installer top mounted it to the knuckle instead of below. Could this be the cause of what i’m feeling?

Yes, if the track bar and drag link aren’t parallel it will cause bump steer. It’s likely the problem, unless they put on a track bar relocation bracket to raise it.

Definitely didn’t order one haha so don’t believe that the case. Ok, sweet, wanted to check with the brighter than my minds on here first!
