    Rancho 2” JLU pulling right

    I’ve had my lift for about 2 months now. Springs are settled and rides great. However, ever since day one(of being lifted) the Jeep pulls right. I bought adj trackbars to recenter the axles, thinking this was the culprit. I went to install the trackbars today, but after measuring, the axles are at most 1/4 to 1/8 inch off center. The pull is more than just road gradient or having wide tires (37x12.5x17 STT pros). Any other ideas? Next stop is the alignment shop to get official numbers but figured I’d ask here to see if anyone has ideas?

    Track bars and axle centering will NOT cause a pull. Ignore that. Plus as you hit any bump in the road and the axle cycles, the axle will shift due to design anyways.

    Tires at equal pressures? Did you have the tires before the lift and didn't have a pull then? You can always rotate the front tires side to side and then see if the pull is in the other direction. That would indicate a tire problem.

    If it isn't a tire problem, pulling is usually a caster problem, however on a solid axle vehicle, it's pretty hard to have caster be different from side to side. Did your lift come with new control arms in the front?

    Tire pressures are even all around at 30psi. No adjustable arms, but did install rancho drop brackets about two weeks after the lift install to tighten things up. Still pulled right. Gonna rotate the tires and then go get it on a rack to see the alignment specs.

    Probably too much toe out. You can’t go by the factory specs anymore on the rack. Use Eddie’s guide & video to check it yourself.

    Did you find out the issue?

    I am considering the 2” lift from Rancho for my JLUR.
