I replaced my brand new Napa reman box with a Bluetop and my steering is so much nicer but it is still hard to steer like the ps pump ain’t working right. Also the new box won’t return to center on its own any suggestions? I’m very satisfied with my steering other than these issues. I’m going to be going back to stock wheels and 245 tires soon hopefully that will help with handling to....

Caster will affect return rate.

The box might need alittle adjustment also. Have spoken to Blue Top?

Yes I did adjusted top screw but did not help. I’m going to take it in for a professional alignment next week and see what that does.

I think I would let him know.  I'm not sure how far you can back the screw off with out hurting anything. I never had to adjust one that way unless I over tightened it.

We discussed how much to turn it. Only turned a quarter turn. I’ll call him and see if he has any other information.

Just checking. Sometimes people don't catch the pucks in the top of the springs. Just a leveling kit can alter the caster pretty good. 

 

Since its stock, I would say hit an alignment rack.

Have you recently replaced the ball joints? I have seen new ball joints be so tight that they cause those issues. Sometimes its the joint being made too tight, sometimes its because one or more was damaged during installation.

Nope I’ve never touched them. 

 

Well I’m finally a member of the skinny tire club! Installed the new Hankook Dynapro AT2 LRE 245/75/16s tonight. Now speedo needs to be corrected as it’s 5 mph off and my other beef with these is that when whipping the wheel around at hiway speed it stays around like crazy and feels dangerous. Why is this? All my old tires never did this. I inflated them to the specs in the door sticker.

I had a couple sets of nitto tires years ago and they required a break-in period before they felt stable at hwy speeds.

I had that also with this last set of Transforce's. They're a deep treaded tire. Wiggly as heck for a while on the 4 lane. Like I had to wear the shine off so they could grip or something. :shrug:
