which is exactly why I have not gone down that path. When my stock FCA/joints/bushings do wear out and require replacing I will then tackle this beast. It will be one of the few times I take the car to a proper shop to have the work done.Agreed, and of all the myriad or folks who have installed the tall ball joints and bumpsteer kits...or just bump steer kits in general, I haven't met ONE who has set the bump properly.
Just as a reminder, here are the ACTUAL results I personally measured while doing mine.
First with the parts just thrown on and second with the bump corrected using an actual bump steer gauge-not just a guess by looking at the control arm angle and winging the adjustment.
This is what you get when you guess:
.240 out in only 2 1/2" of travel...that's 1/4" of an inch!
This is what you get when you do it properly:
.018 out in a full 3" of travel...that's only .006 per inch.
Which do you think would be more a stable/predictable car to drive?
As I always say, if you aren't going to do it right, don't do it at all.
The only possible result will be making it worse.
You may not realise it, but it definitely won't be right, unless you do it right.
My recommendation: Skip the tall ball joints and bump kit.
Okay, off my soapbox.
