Thanks for the reply. It's the original kit. I remember hearing something about this once that's why I suspect there is an issue with the parts. I have tried to correct the problem by backing out all of the relevant bolts and realigning the parts but this has not worked.

Some cars can have the problem corrected while other's can't. The only way to get the same toe on both side's is by putting a different hub on the right side of the car. I had to run a 1 degree block on the right side to get my toe to 2 degree's per side. It sucks but this is the only way that it can be done.

I did it and didnt like cause it takes steering away going in to the turn. If you want to do it shave down the front knobs on the blocks that hold the hing pins in like the 2 block or the 0/4 block. as for the shock tower you might need to shim it fwrd behind the shock collar. What car do you have the xxxs or the xxxs g+ ? cause your going to need to move the streeing rack in the fwrd holes.
Harris,

I also tried it and felt the steering to be to agressive for my driving style.

Man, has anybody noticed how much the drivetrain freed up once you ran a couple of times.... I didnt have to work on anything. Super smooth and freerolling... I love it.

I got a pretty good setup on asphalt if anyone gets a wild hair and wants to try something different. Let me know...
