I always correct my bump steer to 0.

Toe out means the angle of your steering links is getting too steep as you compress. You need to raise the inner ballcup, or lower the outer.

Cant raise the inner ball stud.it can only be shimed front or back...to lower the outer ball stud I would need to dremel the plastic away under the ball stud.

If you notice on Cav's setup sheets he had the outer ball stud marked as -1. I assume he is removing 1mm of material from the steering block.

Well....no racing for me this today.......another week gone by and no ball stud from AE.....now it went from I was supposed to "have it Thursday or Friday" to "there was a delay in shipping somewhere, sorry for the inconvience"

Just a little more than frustrated at this point, so I ordered a set of the TiN ones from another vendor so I can run my dang car.

Out of the two hobby shops and the track here, nobody had the correct ballstud.

I would have thought AE would have stepped up and sent me what I needed in stead of having a pissed off customer....but I went through all the hoops and still have no part.

If I would have known all this, I would have just ordered one online to begin with.

It is what it is at this point....

It's one ball stud, and everyone can use spares... I would've just bought some myself while waiting on AE...

Stupid question here but getting mixed results... How are you guys setting your ride height? Are you dropping from 4/6 inches off table or are you just sitting on the table and settling the suspension?
