    Good question for Buck. We have shared a few ideas but I have nothing new to add for now.

    Gee wiz guys. I have been anxious for this since I saw your picture. If I have to wait much longer then I will have to make my own.

    I could use a bump steer kit too. Roads down here are terrible and riddled with pot holes. Im still wondering where i can get a wing fabbed up like yours autobody lol. I could use the downforce in the corners

    After installing the coil overs with my djm my bump steer is reduced quite a bit. It's also sitting a littl huger in the front. But I am also looking forward to a bump steer kit

    Hey torspd you should ask sdxrunner619 hes got hes custom made but he said hes only willing to help out other drifters so you going to have to become a drifter now, if you want a bump steer kit.

    Been like herding cats with this one for some reason. The current design "works". It helps with the bump steer caused from lowering a vehicle. But, the current design has the tie rods bottom out in the tie rod end before we are able to get the truck in stock alignment specs. This is fine for us and AutobodyX because our alignments are set for track driving. I think I need to light a fire under someone's ..... to get the new and improved version fabbed to do some more testing. Once everything is right, we're having a couple hundred produced so that we are ready for the phone calls to start rolling in. :blurock:

    Stay tuned

    Give me a measurement between the jamb nut and the center of the outer tie rod and from the dust boot to the jam nut.

    This new kit is more adjustable and the how is a secret for now. It will compensate for various drop set ups instead of just mine.
