    Someone here can help as soon as the owners that have done what you have come strolling in. Usually 24hrs gets answers around here or more questions, either way.

    Bump steer

    Your experiencing bump steer, I could explain but not like a video.

    These front ends, there designed to ride at a certain height with minimal bump steer. This model has a rack and pinion but what I"m showing you "is" the effect of what your front ends is doing.
    Our trucks have strut rods that holds the lower control arm (ball joint) set a certain distance and when you go up and down that distance (pushing and pulling) causes part of the bump steer as well as the tie rods do!
    This is ALL about geometry of the front end and I know this only because I tried everything to correct it. You can get a a gauge that monitors two air bags R/L so you can run a certain pressure to find that sweet spot while your driving.
    The only bump steer "free" front ends while running bags are Pinto/Mustang ll or Dodge Volare.
    My fix was a was 74 Pinto for $40 and a lot of hours, they do make kits but not for $40.

    With my truck, I kept the strut rods when I bagged it. It haset been driven for any long distances yet but i dont recall my tires pushing out when aired out.

    Yeah Tom went all out on the truck but after he moved to another state for his job he fell of the face of the earth. As far as I know he could have sold it. He's posting mustang videos and a nice one at that.
    Here's the last one he uploaded

    That truck was on Craigslist in my area a month or two ago. I've seen them videos before so I knew the truck as soon as I seen it.
