A couple things to try one at a time and in no particular order.

These two should cause more weight to transfer to the front of the car.

- More anti-squat
- less front droop and more rear droop (the greater the difference between the two, the more weight transfer to the front, but you don't want to go too far )

To create a little less rear traction, you can:

- reduce the rear toe
- move the shocks out on the tower

That would have been more fun.

+1. A local fast kid helped me out using the same method and it fixed the binding. He polished the ball studs a bit too. Thanks dude

Polishing removes a little bit of material too.
