Re: Alignment help/Very poor steering

I agree with Rcp tht most kits come with cheap heims, but that does not men theyre bad.
Don't replace what's not broke

Also I noticed you said your drag link and track bar are close to parralell. Close means they not parralell.

I recently replaced my steering box i noticed the bot hoes on the inside of the frame ovaled out so Ive been paying more attention and found the frame flexes allowing the box to move.

So your drag and track bar are out of wack

Possibley moving steering box or even cracked frame.

Castor is a none wearing tire angle play with it till it drives how like you like. Visually eye pinion angle the more castor you have the worse the pinion angle.

Turning Cs would be fun project but doubtful its the solution to your problem

Re: Alignment help/Very poor steering

With the 33's on there now, a steel steering box mount is a must!

Re: Alignment help/Very poor steering

Re: Alignment help/Very poor steering

sounds like a track bar issue. replace the bushings/tre's. i do the tape measure alignment with no issue.
