Re: Wandering after hitting a bump

beat me to the punch(The symptom you are observing is called “bump steer”. Search the internet, you’ll find lots of stuff.)
One of the major contributors is the drag link to tie rod angle. If the drag link is parallel to the tie rod you would have very little bump steer. The “drop pitman arm” is used to help reduce this angle by lowering the drag link. I am no expert, because I have the same problem and haven’t fixed it yet.
