    Bump steer

    I have a vague idea what bump steer is. If someone can explain exactly what It is and how to adjust or add I would appreiate it .

    Thanks

    bumpsteer is when a tire goes upward in its travel, it usually toes the tire inward and when the suspension drops It toes outward.

    bumpsteer cannot be adjusted as the steering geometry is fixed within the bellcrank.

    I have steve slayden's set up done . The only thing I dont understand is this. "Toe: 1.5 (out), set at ride height with a slight amount of bump steer (bumpout). It seems to like a little bit of bumpsteer. -Static Camber"

    well the tire when fully compressed will camber in along with bumpsteering inward, so the ride height is set low, then camber/toe are adjusted accordingly
