ZJ Steering Gearbox Brace for 1993-1998 ZJ Grand Cherokee

How long has it been since you've checked your three steering gear bolts?  Have you noticed looseness in your steering? Do they come loose often? If so, it's probably because you've added quite a bit of force to the system by adding taller and wider tires. Let me impress upon you how important it is to KNOW that they're they tight!  See, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.  You learned that in High School Physics, right? Anyway, when you turn the steering wheel to the right, the pitman arm forces the tie-rod to the right, pushing the front...

Grand Cherokee ZJ V8 Under-drive Pulleys- Q&A with Kevin - PhD in Jeepology, School of Hard Rocks
