I have a buddy that just bought a mod with a ford stub & 3 link rear. He called the guy that build it & got the basic set up. The problem he has is when he lets off the gas the car wants to turn around. Left one time right the next. He said it dosen't matter what you do with the steering wheel it will just turn around. This is on a county road not the track. Dirt or pavement it does the same. Any sug. welcome!!!!

When we got our first mod, I took it out on a gravel road. It scared the **** out of me. It was all over the place. Took it to the track & it handled just fine.

What ford stub is it on?If it is a rear steer stub such as the older Torino etc,I had lots of problems with bump steer.Thats what my first mod was.The first thing I did to it was get rid of the rubber bushings in the front strut rods that angle back to the lower control arms,replaced with heims end and made a big diffrence,seems they dont like the lower arm moving back and forth under braking,changes caster camber settings everywhere.

make sure that the 2 link brackets on the rearend are WELDED not just bolted they will still move and do that to ya make it all over the place all the time

Thanks for the info guys! Ran it last & found a jam nut on a rear bar was too close to the bracket on the rear & was binding. It is a rear steer, so thanks for the info on the rubbers way2fast.
