Jeep Bump Steer


Bump steer is one of those mildly dangerous annoyances, which come from second-guessing Jeep engineers. As with many Jeep maladies, the best fix is simply prevention. If you are planning to lift your rig, get a lift kit with a trac-bar relocation bracket, which enables you to reposition the track bar so it remains parallel to the drag link.

  1. I’m really glad I found this sight and I hope you keep all of the useful articles coming. I’ve learned a lot about my Jeep, things they don’t tell you in the user manual. I think you guys rock!

  2. I bet there are a bunch of people who read this article and said to themselves, I don’t plan on lifting my rig. OK. Are you taking it off road? Are you so damned sure that you’ll never get stuck and have to be LIFTED out of a fix? Bite the bullet and put the trac-bar on the Jeep. Hind sight is always 20/20, but it will still be too late to wish you had done it before you needed it.

  3. No kidding? I wonder how I didn’t hear about this from the dealer who sold me the Jeep or the mechanic who does the maintenance. Both of them know how the Jeep is used and I’m pretty sure both of them should have known that this would be a good investment for me. Thank God for your site. This is not the first time I’ve learned something that I should already have known. Thanks and keep up the good work.
