    Alright well today i went to some local sand pits.. did a lil wheeling.. where the rain is making lil ravines i tried to climb up one.. i basically put my trucks tires against it on an angle.. front right hitting first. and tried to get up it. just some semi agressive attempts to see if i could pop up it.. im on 33" mt and this wall was like 1.5ft tall, all sand. After i give up and turn around go out. i cant put my steering wheel straight to drive straight, i had to have it turned left till the center of the wheel was 90degrees off level... it made no sense to me. this has happened b4 as well when i tried to get up onto a rock to flex... steering went outta wack a tiny bit.. nothign like this. So i ended up going home and adjusting my drag link which fixed the problem for steering straight but i still dont get what got knocked outta place.. my ubolts are all tight, swaybar is still on and tight... any ideas? tierods are good too..

    It just happens . Sometimes everythings all tight and right , and it does it . The solution is crossover , and I can't afford it on two trucks .

    Weird!!! Might want to check out the pitman arm and the splines in the steering box.
