Thanks for responding so quick!  I sort of thought it had to do with
the lowered tires but it didn't feel like bump-steer but another
poster described it and it sounds like it. Do you know where I can get
the off set bushings? Is their much difference in the solid bushings
(sound and road bump feel) compared to the poly bushings.
