I have the MC front track bar on the way. Instructions are showing the need to possibly grind out the housing a bit to fit the head of the trackbar. Anyone put one in a Gladiator...did you need to grind?
Got a new diff cover in and about to make the switch. I have two quarts of diff fluid...will that be enough? Couldn't find specs in the manual other than what type of fluid to use....nothing about how much.
It didn't resolve the dead spot I have - however - the big difference I've noticed is that the Jeep no longer requires constant feedback to track straight. It's made for a much more enjoyable driving experience - for me, it was well worth the money and I only regret not having done it sooner.
I had high hopes for my dealership that they could get this thing dialed in. Round 1 of new drag link components and generally torquing down things got it about 75% there. Took it back in today and got the call that the dead space was, 'to be expected when lifted (it's not lifted) with bigger...

Just got back from the shop. They identified the drag link assembly as being the problem and they have ordered a new one to install. I'll follow up when it's done on whether it got things tightened up. Interestingly, they must have tightened down some other components because my steering is...
I feel like it comes back to center without issue - just has that gap before it will respond to the opposite direction it was last turned to. I'll pay more attention to that though when I go back out later.
