TJ sterring stop adjustment bolts

Post  Mark on 2/14/2013, 8:52 am

The tj steering stop / limiter, adjustment bolt is pictured here.
The nut is welded to the bolt.
Put a wrench or socket on bolt and remove it, place one or two flat washers behind nut and re install it.
Turn the steering wheel stop to stop and check to see if the tire hits lower control arm on rear inside of the tire.
Installing washers on left side will affect the right side and right will affect the left.
Better to have a helper, just make sure rear tires are chok blocked and please do not run over your helper!!
Some times it is best to roll jeep a bit back and forth to see for sure if you have enough washers installed.

Any time Rob.
I'm just passing on what I know and wish someone would have done the same for me when I was building my jeep.
Instead I had to learn the hard way, by making mistakes, doing stuff two or three times etc.
Luckily I was in the automotive trade already so it comes kinda easy, sorta.

Yeah it's good to know what I'm looking for before getting underneath, but in some sense if you've worked on one car, you can figure pretty much any of them out. If you got a good sense about these things, that is. I usually do alright. It's good to have plenty of tech info on here though. It makes this place a valuable resource.

I don't like to see and hear of people struggling with things that I could help them with and make it easier for them.
It makes me feel good inside knowing that I had just saved some one from having to bring their rig to a shop.
They get it back from the shop and they are none the wiser, all they know is that it's fixed and their wallet is a bit lighter.
But a lot of the time due to mis communication etc, the problem is not corrected.
I know that most people have time constraints and such.
I don't know every thing, but if someone needs some advice I am more than willing to help those that do.

If any one needs some advice don't be afraid to ask.
In the end it is up to you whether to take it or not.
Shop around, free advice isn't always free, free bad advice can cost you!
