Steering trouble

New here and wanted to see if you guys might have some advice on my problem. I have a 2001 GT. It was lowered when I bought it, not sure how much or what brand springs were used. It has 18's on it and I have had the alignment checked twice, all good. The problem I am having only occurs while backing up and turning the wheel in either direction. It feels like the wheels are trying to walk away from each other until one breaks loose and pops back in line, not sure if that makes sense. I was thinking maybe it was from the lack of camber adjustment with the lowering springs. Anyway, you can hear and feel it when the tire pops back in line, and when I start rolling forward the problem quits. Thanks for any help.

Re: Steering trouble

It sounds to me like (if its the front end) that the tire is hitting the front sway bar or the A Arm. You should be able to look under there and tell. Is the tire that pops and jumps the one that is pointed inward?

Re: Steering trouble

Yes, the best that I could tell it was the tire that the front was pointed inward. However, it does this no matter how for the wheel is turned. It is not greater at max. turn.

Re: Steering trouble

Take a look in the wheel well with the tire off and look for rubbing places and such. Measure from the ground to the top of the wheel well and also measure the distance from the top of the tire to the wheel well and we can see how low it is or take a pic.
