Re: Holy Bumpsteer Batman!

make your draglink more parallel to tie rod....even with hydro it bumpsteers if drag link is at big angle...either dropped drag link, or raised steering arm or block under it..(which I know you didnt want to hear beings you just bought your setup)

Re: Holy Bumpsteer Batman!

I have an offset drag link, stepped in the middle so it is parallel with the tie rod, but I know what you mean about the point at the steering arm and point at pitman arm needing to be closer to same height as each other. I have a drop pitman, no raised steering arm though. I'll look into it. Or just machine one myself.

Re: Holy Bumpsteer Batman!

is it safe to assume you dont have crossover steering? and answering yes you dont, wouldnt that correct this problem if you switched over to it?

Re: Holy Bumpsteer Batman!

Ok now what the hell are you people talking about? I HAVE crossover, I DON'T have any tire rub, and yeah I have a 4" block, oh my god oh no I have blocks oh my god shoot me! There freaking temporary anyway, I'll be getting rid of them before I even have a front shaft so what the hell does it matter! Oh yeah, I'm a poser with no front shaft, excuse me if I don't want to run a junkyard shaft.

Screw you guys! I'm going home...
