Has anyone used the Baer tracker kit? From what I read it's supposed to greatly reduce bump steer, plus it lets you make adjustments if you decide to lower the car. Seems like a nice setup, I wonder if it works on the trucks as well.

What's "bump steer"?


.
It's the tendency for the car to pull to one side as the suspension cycles, most predominant under hard braking. Basically as the suspension compresses it causes the toe of the front wheels to change, which can cause the car to pull to one side. Ideally the toe would remain constant through the entire range of the suspension travel but in the real world it's not going to happen. These kits let you minimize it, and also correct it if you lower the car or make other suspension adjustments.

Now who's going to make the first toe joke.

Dodge provides OEM factory shims for adjusting the bump steer on a Viper, both front and rear. It takes more time to measure it than to adjust it.

Right on do they adjust the tie-rods, steering rack, or a-arms?

Has nothing to do with learning how to drive, you should maybe learn how to setup the suspension on your car, but it's probably not a prolem on the F-body now is it. :fist:

The front has shims under the steering rack. Rear toe links are height adjustable near the inner pivots with offset-punched plates.
