  • Problems with 1997-2006 Jeep TJ Wrangler Power Steering Box

    May 26,2017

    Jeep TJ Wrangler Steering Box Problems


    Now, more than 20 years after the first one rolled off the assembly line, one of the biggest issues that many owners have is with the Jeep TJ Wrangler power steering box. But while many of them now sport oversized and aggressive rubber, the TJ Wrangler was originally equipped with comparatively smaller 205/75R15 tires. The increased resistance from bigger, wider tires means the TJ Wrangler’s power steering box that has already seen years of abuse has to work even harder as it tries to muscle the front wheels from side to side. This increased wear on an old power steering box assembly and power steering pump causes dead spots in the steering travel and can eventually lead to the complete failure of the power steering system.

    The Differences Between Shocks & Struts

But this rarely, if ever, restores the stability of the entire suspension and many of our customers become discouraged when the symptoms of a worn suspension persist.
