Proper Offset would be #1.....what Anti and toe are you running on the rear end ? are you checking ride height often ?

i run a 3/3 rear end most of the time...ride height is something that Needs to be checked on a constant basis...throughout the day things will change and need to be adjusted...its just the way it is....proper offset will do wonder for you tho....get some Extender's and from now on buy zero offset and stay with that.

Integra, what diff oil and sway bar setup do you run with 3 degrees of toe in the rear, I'm running 2 degrees in the rear of my 1.0 and the rotation in the corners is a touch too much for mine.

7-SD-3...i haven't ran a regular center diff in quite some time.

2.3 for the sway bar.

Yeah, 3k in the back is good. I ran that when I had my truck. But 10-15k in the center. Never had a chance to run one of those smart diffs. Ive herd good and bad. Dont really want to spend 75$ on R+D. If you have too much rotation in the corner, turn down the steering, softer on the front sway, possibly thicker rear shock oil, ride hight, the list goes on and on for adjustments. You need to look at what the truck is doing and what you want it to do. If its only in a couple of corners, make adjustments to your driving line and maybe a small adj to the truck. If its every corner, then you need to look at set up. Check some of the pro set ups on line and even the base one in the back of the manual. It is a very good, neutral set up for alot of different tracks/conditions. body looks good though.
