Rebuilt the entire front end. Took the arms off, threw away the paper shims and started over. made sure axles were at exactly the same height, checked camber and caster on a RPM gauge.
Replaced old front springs with new ones.
Replaced the worn out pivot ball socket-then recentered the rear pod and set the side links.
Pulled out the axle, replaced a bad bearing, recentered rear axle. I was off-shims must have hit the floor on some rebuild over the last few months and I didnt know it.
Reset tweak screws.
Dropped batteries in a little deeper into battery box (I ran the car last year with Pani UMH and never recut for GP3300).
Repolished kingpins and all balls (that sounds so bad).
And of course reset the toe links, radio, etc. Just fine tuned it.
