chassis yaw/torque steer

Postby speeduck » April 17th, 2011, 12:11 pm

hey guys,
i am still getting that dreaded torque steer, pedal down veer right, let off pedal veer left...... i have checked the torque arm bushings, heck i'm just gonna replace them, and want to replace all the bushings on the rear axle, my question is; will standard high energy bushings(stock sizes)fit in the skyjacker lower control arms i have? or do i need to take apart, measure, order and be without wheels for a week while they are shipped...... hopefully somebody already knows the answer to this silly question. thanks

You'll have to buy bushings from a lift kit manufactuer And if that doesn't help me I would look at the track bar or a adjustable track bar It could get out of alignment I have a trouble but I have a big block in m ine Lol

yea i would kinda expect it from a big block, but this thing is kinda poochy for a straight six, and im ok with that, just not the torque steer.

Time for a long arm upgrade.... Better ride, more flex and less torque steer. You know you want to!!
