i understand what your saying.
my wheels weren't alway positioned that far forward, i know lowering it will make it better but i don't have the cash yet for that. so the only thing i can really do is get stock cab's and see if that solves the problem.
well i'm going this week to get it checked out so i'll see what it really is.

Stop saying moronic shit like "we will see if the OEM bushings fix the "problem" and "going to get it checked out so i'll see what it really is."

I already ****ing told you. Don't waste your money.

OEM bushings will "fix" the "problem"
The THR eyeball arms increased caster is what is causing the "problem"

i talked to charlie and he's going to install new tierods and oem cab and brackets as soon as he can track down another bracket. i guess i'll keep the thr ones for when lower it i guess. now if you raise your coilovers all the way will the wheel remain centred?

btw a little off topic, do you use any 3m tape or cover over the front of your car and fenders to prevent rock chips?

No, of course not. Coilovers still obey the same laws of suspension geometry.

No. chips are just part of having a low car with alot of frontal area. I'm buying one of Eurostyles replica front lips soon and repainting it. Mine is wasted.

I spy chips on the fender. Catch it with the tire?

BTW, thank you for finally getting a real suspension.

All the chips on the fender paint are from like the first day or 2 I drove the car.

Hastely reassembled it to make it to the PNW e30 picnic where I was featured. Drove up with 3 people in the car and unrolled front fenders.

I rolled the fenders a long time ago, and have never caught them since with either set of wheels.
