Just bought a 2005 liberty 3.7l with a 6spd Manual Trans,

I own a 2006 TJ, on a full frankenlift, caged, locked on 35's and a 2010 WK hemi, stock.

the KJ seems to have a issue where when driving it darts to the right, and at slow speeds the front vibrates, i'm thkning it's the front struts. but would that affect the vehicle darting?

I'm thinking more something to do with worn steering or TREs.

Vibration... check rotating components for play; i.e. CVs, wheel bearings, etc.

If you haven't already, check your upper and lower ball joints! Also, as stated above, check the steering rod ends for play and have someone flat-steer while you look down from under the hood at the rack and pinion. If it moves more than about 1/8" in any direction your R&P bushings are probably shot. I hope for your sake that they aren't! Replacing them requires full removal of the R&P which is a nightmare.

I managed to changes the driver side bushing without removing the rack. Much easier than I had anticipated.

Spillage from messy oil filter changes tend to degrade the rubber bushing.
