Stiffer rear springs, shorter rear camber link, more camber, full droop, front toe out, inner holes on arms, rear shock in outer tower hole, lower front ride ht.

Thicker front diff fluid. 15/10/5 or 7 AE fluid should do the trick.

Unless we know what set up your running any ideas will be complete shots in the dark..


My suggestion would be to go back to the original out of the box set up..

7,7,4 on diffs, 2 deg Neg camber all around 35-40 on shock oils, set ride height so drive shafts are level front an rear, and set droop to max front and rear, and adjust left to match right, or vise versa, which ever is shortest..

DO these things and I just about bet you'll have more steering then you know what to do with..
