The dual horns are located between the radiator and engine...the horn button controls the circuit...you must remove the steering wheel to gain access to the horn button spring assembly...pre-air bag so not a big deal to remove the steering wheel on your 79 T/A...hope this helps.
Check your lower and upper control arm ball joints as well as the tie rod ends. Also make sure your wheel lugs are tight. Also make sure front hubs are in the free position when operating on the street. If the Jeep has a straight axel, check the king pin bushings at the steering knuckles.
thiers many of things that can cause that, first off with your kit i didnt see lower adjustible
arms so with that much lift your diff angle could be off. needs to be 7deg. also if your sure the ball joints are perfect and its alined right them look at the stearing box for play in the arm . it can be adjusted with the set screw. jeep-xj.com hope that helps....
You said stock height, does that mean you have stock suspension aswell? If I were you I would install stiffer shocks all the way around and add or replace the stock front stabilizer bar with a stiffer one. You may also consider installing more rigid leaf springs in the rear.
