Hi,

Yes you should add the bumpsteer kit, it will help stabilize the steering over bumps. You will notice a diff without one.

Bump steer is where the bottom of the wheel pulls in and out when the suspension moves up and down.
like, hit a bump, and the car steers one way or the other...

It comes from the steering arm not being parallel with the A-arm.
the bumpsteer shimms it down so they are in line.

For more info read up on Maximummotorsports site, or Steeda.



They say past 1.5, you should get one.

Bumpsteer is a change in toe angle caused by the suspension moving up or down.
Bumpsteer is built into the geometry of the suspension and steering system,and
has nothing to do with turning the steering wheel.
The effect of bumpsteer is for the wheel to toe-in or toe-out when the suspension
moves up or down.This toe change or "steering" occurs any time the suspension
moves,whether it is from body roll,brake-dive,or hitting a bump in the road.
Bump steer is undesirable because the suspension is steering the car instead of the driver.
Recommend for all lowered mustangs.
