A cure for bumpsteer maybe
I have a bit of bumpsteer, but what bothers me the most is when I hit the brakes. I'm pulled to one side or the other depending on braking or accelerating. Doesn't feel safe.
I was under the front looking things over, and it looks like there is an installed lowered pitman arm, just not quite low enough. So I'm checking it out, and I'm wondering if swapping the steering rod from bottom to top would help.
I don't know the names of all the front end parts, but I'm talking about the rod that hooks to the pitman arm, and the runs to the pass. side wheel. It bolts on from the bottom, and if it were bolted on the top, the rod (whatever it's called) would be more parallel to the (other rod).
Sorry, I'm trying to learn what they are called. I heard the term drag link, tie rod, etc...
Has anyone tried this to solve bumpsteer? Maybe mine is on backwards to begin with...
