Can anyone help with a steering problem? Car turns great to the left and pushes in right turns. I've checked shock lengths are even, droop is set same, 3mm ft 5mm rr.

Have you checked your cars tweek? If not put it on a flat surface and use an exacto or something similar, What you want to do is lift up on the car using the exacto blade on the bottom of the chassis. For example: Checking the tweek in the rear of car: place blade right under rear bumper, in center of rear chassis, lift car up about 1/4 inch or so till tires come off surface. Now slowly lower the car and note which tire touches first. To adjust if one tire touches before the other: I usually look for the tire that touches last and screw down the shock collar on the FRONT SHOCK OPPOSITE the rear tire which touches down last. Keep raising and lowering the car and rechecking with each small adjustment till you are satisfied and both tires touch down at the same time. Take your time, do the front the same way adjusting the REAR SHOCKS. If you end up adjusting a shock more than 1/4 turn to get it within tweek there may be other missalignment issues. Hope this helps.....
