Uppers can cause bind, I would run OEM uppers or the heavy duty ford racing uppers (rubber bushings but stiffer). Can also box in your OEM uppers~
Hmmm, I wonder if you had some other issue happening there?
Mine work great for cornering, especially when applying power coming out of the corner.
The "solid" bushings in the lift bars actually help keep the rearend centered better so it doesn't "crawfish" out to the side as bad and cause some rear steer.
They are noisier and harder on your torque boxes, but some sacrifice is worth the gains IMO.
My uppers will be adjustable with . . . with . . darn I forgot the name of them.
It's a big spherical bearing that takes the place of the rubber bushing in the upper control arm mount on the rearend. The body side of the uppers will be a large rod end centered in the mount.
It frees up the suspension and relieves the binding caused by the different arcs of the upper and lower control arms.
