If anyone wants mad steering my friend ran the al. c-hubs up front with 7-5-4 diff oils -- car was an animal! It seems that the al. c-hubs made the difference cause my car had the same diff oil package and now where near as much steering.

Just an FYI for the group.

+ a lot...

I found out about the increased steering this past weekend at Wicked. I ran the same setup for all 4 quals and the night before the main decided to install the aluminum c-hubs. I didn't have a chance to practice w/ them prior to the main. The increased steering screwed up all the turn points and how to drive the track (ie., where I would turn/brake/accelerate).

Oh well, lesson learned for next time.

Mine look like that, been running them this whole season. When they start to feel loose between the arm, add a spare shim that you use to space the clutch shoes off the flywheel - put the pin into the arm, then add the shim, then put the c-hub in, then push the pin through. If the knuckle is loose up and down in the hub, just add a shim or two where needed. Being loose isn't a bad thing, you don't want things binding, but a shim or two here or there helps. Also, it helps to replace the caster bushings when needed, and add a dab of tire glue to the c-hub before putting the caster bushing in.
