Hey guys, quick question.

Does anyone else think that removing the rear spring pads would affect handling?

I am thinking since my car is sitting a bit lower in the back and still stock in the front that it is shifting the center of gravity a bit more to the back and It seems that the car is under steering quite easy.

Does this make sense to anyone else?

Thanks.

No it shouldn't.

Your car is setup to understeer from the factory with the staggered wheel/tire sizes.

Get a squared set of rims, run the same size tire front and back and you'll eliminate understeer and the car will handle better than stock. To get even better handling you'll need to do some suspension mods.

what you are getting is different rebound and dampening happening on the front so rear responds quicker then the front creating this issue. If you change the rear you should change the front. Removing the cups won't change the handling characteristics if you are looking to correct your steering problem.

It would be like having two different height shoes on and expecting to walk the same by removing the insole. (Grin)

No, only the rear spring pads are removed, the front spring pads are still in. I was going to put the rears back in so that the suspension is back to factory specs. instead of just having the rear pads out which i think is creating a bit of understeer.

Ya putting the pads in isn't going to change anything.

Only way to reduce understeer is to get a bigger tire in the front and play with the alignment.
