Will be having this kit put on in the next few weeks. Has anyone had any bump steer issues with this kit. I hadn't really gave it much thought but I read a few post about bump steering and using longer outer tie rods to cure it. Just wondered if I should go ahead and have some on hand for the install

I wondered if I'd need them or not. Since know one replied to the 1st post about it I figured it was a as needed bases meaning some cars do some don't. Are they a def need?

More positive caster helps lower the outer tie rod ends. Read test two here: PROFORGED .5 TALLER BALL JOINTS

Tests were done with 3.4 deg positive caster. If you increase to 5 deg positive the tie rod drops .140" and there is a slight reduction to bump steer but I feel the tall tie rod ends are still needed to try to keep bum steer near factory levels. It will still be bad, but not terrible.

I recommend you use the tall outer tie rod ends.
