@JeepCares He is saying he wants to see a Recall rather than a TSB. TSB doesn't guarantee a dealer will address your issue even if you do have one. Most experiences outlined in the multiple steering issue discussions lead me to believe that dealers lean toward saying "It's a Jeep Thing" and sending you on your way leaving the owner to find a solution.

That's the problem, I'm not affected by the recall because I don't have a recall against my Jeep, but yet I have a steering problem. So this leaves it up to the individual Jeep owners to resolve the issue on their own. Luckily my dealership acknowledge my loose steering and replaced the steering box, which helped with the loose steering, but now it seems to wonder more. They said they checked the track bar and it seemed fine so they could not replace it without being told to do so (like a recall).
I actually hear that replacing the LCAs with the Rubicons ones (they are about 1/4" longer then the sport and Sahara) will help with the wondering because it increases the caster, so I'll probably end up doing that along with a after market track bar
The LCA's that are longer are the ones from the MOPAR 2" lift. There is no difference between any production model which I think is part of the issue for Rubicons.

I do understand where you are coming from and your desires to have this steering concern remedied. Unfortunately, since I am not a trained technician, I am unable to provide the exact answers you are looking for. I know this is a concern that is continually being looked into. If you have not visited the dealer recently, we do recommend returning. We would like to make sure we can get you in contact with the proper teams who can provide an additional layer of assistance while you are there. Please send us a PM if you decide to return.
