NEWEST UPDATE: I went and picked up my 2020 Jeep Gladiator (Gobi) today and I'm extremely happy to report that it drives GREAT now!

THE FIX (verbatim from invoice) AIR POCKET IN STEERING SYSTEM, REBLED SYSTEM, ALL OK AT THIS TIME.

That's it. I drove it on city streets and the interstate going about 70 mph and I didn't experience the notchy feel and I don't have that gurgling/bubbly fluid noise coming from in front of me any more.

So, if you're having a problem like this after the TSB steering box replacement, then this might be the cure. It drives like a dream now!

Any idea how u bled it. I had a buddy bleed mine. 25 wheel turns up on jack with car off. 25 turns while car on.


I can’t imagine it needs to be bled more after this but. Doing this did not solve my problem

These PS are self-bleeding, typically through use. However, the more lock to lock cycles the better to get the air out.

I also smelled an unusual odor coming from the vents. I'm not sure what it was but it kind of smelled like something was hot. ..
Is there any break-in period on the replacement? Smell like you speak about to happen like on new engine parts like mufflers and the like. Just a thought....

Thats what I figured, but at the same time figured it couldnt hurt as long as tires were jacked up.
