I seem to have a pretty ugly push. It's minor entering the corner, but significant in the middle of the turn. I checked my toe and it was 1" toe in. Is that enough to develope a push in itself or should I be looking into something else as well? Nothing looks bent so I'm not really sure how this happened. Pit crew error maybe. Changing springs and shocks is not an option as they have to be stock. What do you guys think?

set you toe 1/8" to 1/4" out. then see what happens before you change too much.

a 1/4 " towin is all you will need and that will halp with the push as for the springs you can get a race spring takea torch and burn the paint off and leave it outside in the rain and itwill rust nicley and it won'tget caught by the tec but you need a lighter spring in the right frount

loose is fast & on the edge of out of control

1" toe in? How do you drive that thing?

It wasn't easy. I had my hands full. I know there are some guys at my track running racing springs. I just figured that they would get caught eventually. Can anyone name brands that make the undetectable springs?

fix the toe, but that is not going to solve your push. probably a spring or shock change is needed. push in the middle of turn could be helped with more rear stagger. if you increase rear stagger and you still have a push, you need to look at a spring or shock adjustment.
