quick question... what are those coilovers you got on the front? I have been looking for something like that since I got my truck. My truck came lowered on the torsion bars and pinto shocks, but it rides to soft for me. thanks.

edit: this is related to the coilovers in the pictures here, I saw your build thread and now it's all custom. If you still have these somewhere, I could take them off your hands if the price is right.

It a little hard on the tires due to the extra angle at full lock causes the tires to scrub a little. And the ackerman angle is changed. Causing more wear in the inside tire while turning in either direction.

From my experience drifting..... yes! But if your buying drift car parts you don't complain about buying tires..... daily driving tire wear was a little accelerated. And with my truck having a welded diff. That was just adding the the wear. Everyone is going to have different results due to driving habbits and other vehicle modifications.

Why don't you modify the jig to have a little less ackerman then, that much ackerman on the following wheel isn't wanted. Especially considering it has more angle than the leading wheel, you want a little less angle on the following wheel to help with wheel return during transitions.

There is less turn in on the following wheel. It would be almost physically impossible to have the leading wheel turn less than the other....

Must be the pictures, seems like your trailing wheel has more angle. Might be because I can see the rim face though.
