If you have substantially lowered your vehicle chances are you have introduced bump steer. What is bump steer? Bump Steer is changes in toe caused by suspension movement.

Every car has bump steer, however when you lower the vehicle you increase the amount of bump steer that occurs, if this becomes excessive you will begin to notice some unwanted vehicle driving characteristics.

When you turn your steering wheel you are essentially changing the toe of the wheels to turn the vehicle. Excessive bump steer is undesireable because it introduces unwanted steering inputs which means the suspension is steering the car instead of the driver.

If your car is lowered and has tracking issues and less predictable steering behavior, you need a bump steer kit.

Steeda's Bump Steer Kits will allow you to correct your bump steer geometry and can do so without requiring you to drill or modify your vehicle spindle.

In addition, our bump steer kit makes a great service replacement for your worn out, high mileage outer tie rods even if you do not have excessive bump steer issues.

Pick up a bump steer kit today and refresh your outer tie rods and improve your steering.

Note: Will not clear 16" wheels.

READ THIS BEFORE BUYING FROM STEEDA!

I purchased the Steeda Bumpsteer kit over a year along with several other Steeda suspension components. Everything held up fine but for some odd reason I had a bolt break on each side, each within a couple months of each other. I was shocked as I know I can always count on Steeda quality, so it must have just been a fluke or perhaps an error with the installation. The first time, I called and was put into contact with Frank who was more than helpful. He rushed over the replacement part free of charge even though it had been over a year since the parts were originally installed. The second time I emailed Frank as I was waiting on the tow truck. About an hour later he called me and explained that weekend shipping would be the best option. We went ahead with that and in less than 36 hours the part was at my door ready to be installed.

I can't thank Frank enough for the amazing customer service. That is how you treat a customer!! I never write reviews but this level of service deserves it. Frank has earned himself and Steeda a customer for life, simply due to this level of support long after the original purchase. You can buy this bumpsteer kit or any other Steeda part with confidence knowing that: 1. You're getting a top of the line product 2. It's made with extreme quality right here in the USA and 3. Should anything go wrong they stand by their products and are there to help!

If you're noticing the steering wheel move while going over a bump, you need these!

You should also pick up the X5 ball joints to go with these!

Steeda's bumpsteer kit is a must have, especially if you are running a larger wheel.

My car: 2012 V6 base coupe
When you lower your car, you change the suspension geometry (at both ends of the car). The effect of the front end is that you introduce unwanted toe changes when loading/unloading the suspension. You can feel this change through the steering wheel - it feels like the steering effort changes on it's own as you proceed through a turn, which in turn causes the front end to feel "floaty". Steeda's bump steer kit fixes that problem. It's easy to install yourself (about an hour) with normal hand tools. Remember that you must get an alignment IMMEDIATELY after installing these (you can probably take them to a Firestone or someplace and have them installed and the car aligned at the same time). The kit comes with all the necessary parts and concise instructions. Coupled with Steeda's SLA front lower control arms, your Mustang will steer and feel better than Ford actually intended. Highly recommended.
