Full Hydro Steering: Is it street legal in the state of Georgia?

After dropping 40's on my 1 ton LJ my frame twist sideways while turning wheels... So I think I will need at least a steering assist... but I would go full hydro steering instead if it's street legal in Georgia. I moved 3 months ago to GA so I'm not sure... my LJ drives mostly on the road.

I would strengthen that frame before anything else if it's flexing just by turning the wheels..

Georgia Lift Laws | Vehicle Modification Rules

From what this says, there are no restrictions on what you can do to your steering

I would say assist is but not full....but don't think its specific enough. I think if you caused and accident you would get nailed for full hydro.

I have a 1 ton'd LJ on 39" stickies, its street legal but 99.9% offroad driven. Its got PSC ram assist that works amazing. Even on the buggy trails I smash it through I do not have any issue steering my big tires.

If your cruising the mall, you want assist. No need for full hydro.

Why do you have a 1 ton LJ on 40s, for street driving?

Adding hydro assist to mine took away the frame pushing/pulling.

That's all I got

Cool to know! I've been getting real frustrated and dissapointed about the frame pushing/pulling on mine... finished it last Tuesday just to find out it can't be driven with that steering flaw... I assume you also have double triangulated arms in favor of elimination of trac bar...

It's not intended for street driving but I'm looking to drive it to the trails instead of having to haul it...


Also... I'm running 16" coilovers and at full drop, steering capacity is restricted/reduced real bad...
