Maximo... ADD toe in? (rear) That locks the rear down more... are you sure? I'd reduce toe to let it rotate... depending on how the truck behaves of course.

I am sure ( or at least I am sure I am sure LOL ) ...when you add rear toe in you create scrub, which means the rear tires have already broken traction so its easier for the rear to rotate...on my high powered engines I have to reduce rear toe to keep the back end from spinning out.....

Default your rightdomit...

It does push, and reducing caster, and rear toe in along with removing the front swaybar or going to a thinner one is great advice. It will help get through the tight sections...Great advice.
