Has anyone checked the bump steer on a DW-9 car. If so what length of spacer did you come up with for the tie rods.

DW told me 2" on both sides, measured between the bottom of the steering arms and the top of the tie-rod assys. This is on an '02 DW-8, but I believe the front suspensions are the same.

yeah the fronts are pretty much the same but on the last 2 cars we had 2" was too long on both sides. We had about 1 1/2-1 3/4 on the right and 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 on the left. This car we now have 1 1/4" right and 1" left and seems to be pretty good... maybe a hair to short. Just wondered what others found on theirs.
