Default Front TrueTrac Question

For those of you who have had TrueTracs in the front:
I just had TrueTracs installed front and rear on my 04 LJ with 4.56 gears (D30).
I now have a slight pull to the left, and a fairly aggressive centering affect when I come out of a turn. More effort is required to turn the wheel when driving as well. I have tried it in 2wd and 4hi on pavement and there is no difference in steering between the two.
Is this normal? Everything I read said it was "virtually unnoticeable"

Wondering if I got a bad unit / or install. (although I am not sure how the install could cause this)

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Sounds like it may be adjusted too tight. Are both front tires the same size? Air pressure the same in both front tires? You might want to call the Technical Support line if you don't find your information here.

Tires are the same size. I will check pressure at lunch but I would be surprised if there is more than a pound or two difference.
I did call the eaton support line and left a message.

Well, having driven on it for another day I am getting used to it.
I had a friend with quite a lot of mechanical experience drive it and he didn't seem to think or feel anything off. I think I was noticing it more compared to the old feel.

I talked to the installer and Eaton's tech line and they both said the same thing - give it a little time. I guess I will put some more miles on it and see how it goes.

The more aggressive re-centering is totally normal.

If it keeps pulling left try rotating your tires and check your alignment. The TT will sometimes magnify an alignment issue.
