Ok it is just weird. Energy Suspension master chassis bushing pack, installed. correct 17mm rear sway bushings ordered and installed. whiteline front sway bushings ordered and installed. after every set i installed my car started getting tighter. Yay, right? no noticeable NVA with the tougher poly bushings...yay. installed my brand new kumho ecsta ast(really cheap 225 50 16) last night. now the car Loves to go fast in a straight line.
Cornering force however. Ok, wider than stock tires=more force at the wheel. but my turn in is terrible even compared to my (same size) winterforce firestones. road noise is up to but i knew that, the tires have a rep for noise. ya, ROAD NOISE!!! ......WHat???
Could i have mistakenly tuned my car for straight line? i have a meeting with our alignment tech this weekend so ill get that straightened out thanks to Big Sky it just seems to weird that a set of directional tires would cause a car to not want to turn in like it used to. that or identified a problem that my winter tires was masking. OR...is this just the normal progression of a poly chassis redeux since i have only done the rear trailing arm and sway bar bushings/ front lower C.A. and sway bar with a TIC klunk killer kit and tranny mount bushings on the way. note, no other suspension mods other than...
Front lower CA. energy susp. black bushings
Front 20mm sway bar. energy susp. black bushings
Front factory end links. whiteline susp.(cause the 'master pack' didnt come with em...)
