its possible it has nothing to do with the t-bars...im just curious what about what i should be looking out for.
How new are your shocks? If you have old shocks that could be what the sound is coming from. As far as pulling to the right what kinda tires do you have on it? and if they aren't MT's that will follow grooves, they should not be pulling one direction or the other no matter if you crank your t bars or not, IF the alignment was done properly and suspension pieces aren't worn out. Also you could try taking your front sway bar off, some people thinks it feels better that way especially when going over the sides of something or turning in specific ways like that. I personally have mine off and havent put it back on. Either way a tbar 4x4 ranger is not going to drive that well lol. Add on cranking your t bars, old shocks, and more aggressive tires, def not going to ride that great. But I feel like my ride was pretty shitty when I first got it with no t bar crank and 235 at radials that were wore unevenly.
So I cranked my t bars up a tad, added lift, and 33 MT's and the ride really isn't much worse and I feel like I gained alot for alil less comfort. Really the major difference for me was my fully adjustable rancho 9000 shocks. I have em soft right now at 3 and can even go down to 1 if need be.
