    Twitchy? Maybe an air bubble?

    Im gonna look at that possibility today as well. I don't know how to explain it other than it feels like i could lose control of it and do a 360 turn anytime over a certain speed.

    So i moved up the track bar on frame side abd looks way more inline now. Moved some lines from hitting and tried to bleed it some more but i didn't get anything other than a little overflow when turning up on stands. Im under the impression that means air but i couldn't seem to make a difference no matter what i did. So i buttoned it up and drove it again. Granted i didn't really have turning just a straight line but hitting bumps doesn't affect steering its just sensitive or what i would consider roadwalking, jerky, or darty. Really at a loss....im no mechanic lol

    So still tuning this pile...

    I lowered tire pressure and then realized i hadn't reconnected my anti rock sway bar so i did that. I wanted to check toe but need an extra hand to measure. Took it for a drive and its now manageable enough with those two things but it had trouble turning right and overflowed so i got an air problem still damnit.

    I started by filling reservoir then jacking it up, unlocking wheel, and turning left. Turned slowly back and forth while checking reservoir every 6 or so times. I hooked up the damn ram the wrong way but found out before i screwed up something and had to change it so i reconnected it tight and did the whole bleeding process over again. Once i felt it was good i started it and went left to right again til it seemed good. That's when i drove it and went through all of what i posted.

    Maybe I missed it, but why is the passenger front spring set in crooked?

    Both are bowed as that is the only problem using Artecs truss system on the 05+ extreme drivers offset dana 60. It even says in their instructions.

    So hydro assist has sucked. Finally figured it out it seems though as i swapped in a wj v8 steering pump and its better than ever.... one finger steering on flat ground with the 40s. Im seeing some light at the end of tunnel lol. Now i just need the money to roll in. Of course paying for a vacation is taking up the money at moment.
