The diff may seem good, but these 22's need a much tighter diff than I have ever ran. Its very easy to check, I was told about a flick test from one of the factory guys. I put a small white mark on the right tire (whiteout), give the tire a quick "flick" and if it spins for less than one full revolution it is tight enough. All the while holding the left wheel stationary. The goal is 3/4 to 1 rotation. Any more and it is too loose, tighten a bit and re-flick it.

Hope that helps!
I did this and myu truck was locked down!
You have to check this frequently too!
If it starts to drive squirley it is more than likely the diff!

Bump Steer? I've been seeing this in the setup sheets for the 22T. Where is this adjusted? What's a good starting point? What does it do?

Thanks in advance.

This is most common changed by raising or lowering the ball stud on the spindle. Bump steering is an effect where the toe of the car changes with the compression of the suspension. If you look at the tires top down and compress the suspension you will most likely see the toe change a little in the front tires and this is called bump steer.

Is this the same ball stud that controls the camber?

Any chance of getting 75mm 4mm turnbuckles to use on the 22T. I'd like to use all the same size and ball cups as the 22SCT.

No the steering link one on the spindle not the one on the caster block.

I am not sure if there are plans to release the 4mm rods for the 22T or the 22?

So it's the one that you use to adjust the front toe in/out?

Yes that outer ball stud is what we tyically use for adjusting bump steer. (you can use the steering rack side as well.)

Ran both of my 22T's this weekend, they were really good considering the track was bone dry! There wasn't a tire in my massive box that would have fixed my loose condition but they both handled great considering the conditions! When theres traction though these guys are LIGHTS OUT!
