We are just a little tight going in and a little loose coming out. Running 49% cross. What small changes should we make? Maybe soften right rear spring? Take a little cross out? Don't want to make a very big change so any help would be great.

add stagger to loosen going in, and lead the RR to tighten coming out. If you can't add lead in the rearend maybe bump the cross up a touch.

Well Donavan i guess you got that machine running again lastnite. Ok answer to your ? with little change. I know you dont have alot of choice with stagger but if you do smaller front tire that will add cross and get you in better. But if not and something that works for me is to drive it a little deeper in and if you need to just use a little break going in. So lets up that cross a little and drive it deeper before letting off. Good luck tonite and cruses is not el paso so it will act alot different tonite. Your friend Steve The " TOO BAD MAN " lol ........ Oh me Oh my when is the checker coming my way lol

Alaignment is good, but I'm going to recheck toe out to make sure we didn't lose some. Thanks

I think the smaller left front would cause a push on exit too, but I'm not sure. Actually, I don't drive this car, my buddy does, and he said he tried to get it loose and it wouldn't. I think we are going to try what Gould suggested, plus maybe put a little more toe out and see if that helps. He is already loose coming out and I didn't want to make that worse. I am diffently open to suggestions.

Have you tried just changing rr offsets and leaving eveything else the same such as going up a 1/2 inch at a time on the RR if you have a2 on the rr the try a 4 on the left rear. Easiest way to change something

If we bring right rear in that will tighten exit, but, won't that also tighten entry?

Adding cross should loosen you up a little in and help with forward bite on exit.
