Bump steer help

My 04 gt always pulls to the right under moderate braking and bumps at a decent speed. I've recently upgraded to cobra front brakes and put new sway bar end links. The problem is still there. Any suggestions

I do know the rubber on the driver side motor mount is cracked but I don't think that would cause that

Re: Bump steer help

Well if bleeding the brakes doesn't fix it you could try some new offset rack bushings...

It really depends on whether the car is lowered and if so how much.

Generally bushings give you ~ 1" of adjustment.

A significant drop is going to create more bumpsteer, which originates from the tie rod ends and a-arms not being aligned and not traveling at the same rate.

So I'd say if you have a drop of 1.5" or more then you're probably going to want to get the bumpsteer kit.
