I am considering purchasing a 2020 JLUR, but the only thing holding me back from purchasing it is the steering issues that I seem to read about in this forum. From what I've read, it seems like there are 2 basic categories of steering issues. The first one is death wobble like symptoms which range from minor to violent oscillation of the steering components traveling into the steering wheel. The other is basically a 1 inch or greater dead spot in the steering wheel which causes one to constantly oversteer. What I want to know if there are jeep owners who have had a steering problem, done all the recommended solutions, and the problem has still not gone away? These are the "recommended" solutions that I am referring to that I gathered from reading the various steering threads:
- checked that all bolts relating to steering are torqued according to specs.
- replaced the track bar with either the new track bar or with an aftermarket one.
- replaced the drag link and tie rod. This one would have to be done with an aftermarket one since Jeep is not replacing these parts.
- replaced the steering damper to the version. This solution, from what I've read, is not really a solution, but rather a bandaid to the real problem.
- increased the caster angle to 6 degrees or greater. This would require buying new lower control arms.
- replaced the steering box to the version ending with letters AE.
- had a re-flash of the software.
