ANSWER: Often after lift a Wrangler JK the owner or installer overlooks the absolute need to correct the steering wheel alignment. The Jeep’s computer uses steering wheel position to determine the direction of the vehicle. If it’s off more than a few degrees the Jeep thinks it is in a slide and uses the traction control system to attempt to correct the problem. Adjusting the steering wheel position is simple. There is a threaded collar in the drag link. Rotating the collar will turn the wheel one way or the other. It’s usually easiest to have 2 people. One in the Jeep to observe the wheel the other turning the collar. See below.

Steering Wheel Alignment
When my vehicle is going straight, the steering wheel is turned ~15 degrees to the left. The vehicle was involved in one big hit on the right side where I hit a big rock coming around a corner. The front wheel hit hard but bounced over it, yet it was hard enough that when the back wheel hit it bent the trailing arm. I'm sure that's what caused this, but front a-arms and everything look fine. My question is, how do I got about centering the steering wheel? Is there some way to adjust it via the steering rack, or is it an issue with the suspension components and maybe something actually is bent? The overall alignment seems fine in regard to not pulling to one side or the other, but it's also more difficult to tell on dirt vs. trying to hold a lane on the road.
