In the past I have puchased a fabricated drag
link from P.R.E. to control bump steer and it
works perfectly but they only tool up to make them once a year and you gotta getum quick. Are there any other products out there
to make setting bump steer as easy. My clip
is an early camaro style.

Is it the stock type because I drill the
inner tie rod pickup point in the link and
use 5/8" tubular rods with heim joints on
both ends. I don't want to spend alot on
something I have to modify to make work. The
P.R.E setup is fully adjustable at every point and in all directions, real easy to
setup. All you have to do is drill the idler
and the pitman arm to accept a 3/4 heim joint. Got the number to Howe?

HOWEs number is 517-435-7080. The link is a stock replacement piece that is fabricated for racing. It replaces TRW# DS830. Setting the bump steer is made easy by moving spacers on either side of the tapered end studs. The complete assembly costs $169 when I bought mine 2 years ago. They also offer a Camaro Idler arm for $28. Pitman arms are $63.50. Give em a call, I've been buying a ton of parts from them the past few years and have been more than satisfied with price and quick delivery. You modified guys need to also check out their reworked O.E.M. front clips. Their Camaro units ready to weld on for $600, very nice pieces!

Thanks Limited5, What exactly comes in the kit? The price isn't the problem, what I look
for is replacing bent parts after a little rough stuff on the track. Do all the parts have to be purchased from howe, such as the
inner and outer tie rod ends.

Are you guys checking your bump steer with a gauge or just bolting on the parts that are supposed to correct bump steer? I set the bump steer on my car using stock metric stuff that way I didn't have to search for exotic parts or try to remember what I have on my car. Also after you set your bump steer you need to always set your ride height the same.

I check it two ways, once with a computer
program and back that up with a bumpsteer
gauge.
