I'm only lowered 3/8" in front and with 525 lb/in springs there's not much deflection, so no, bump steer has not been evident.Have you had any issues with bump steer after lowering your vehicle? After lowering my vehicle I'm noticing some weird oscillations while going over bumps, fairly certain it's due to the Coilover installation in the rear combined with running soft rebound settings.
As far as I know, anti-lift (aka anti-squat) is achieved via aligning the suspension members so they gradually bind. Compliance of bushings and that alignment determine how harsh the bind is. The technology was well developed in the early '60s for double-A arm suspensions to control soft suspensions when damper technology was barely adequate and tires were skinny. As dampers improved into the '70s and tires became wider and suspensions became stiffer as a result of accommodating aero downforce, most of the anti- alignments went away or became very small.What are your thoughts on an Anti lift kit like the ones offered by Whiteline and Superpro?
could a similar effect be made by running a stiffer spring rate in the rear(or all together) to counteract torsional rotation?
So my current thoughts on anti-lift is that a stiff suspension removes the benefit, particularly for a McPherson strut car that turns left/right (instead of a drag racer, where soft might be advantageous for launch). After all, we try to eliminate binding wherever we can for the most predictable handling (e.g. spring seats and swaybar links), so why intentionally introduce it? (*)
(*) okay, technically I introduce tire binding by having a high rear toe-in, but that's to heat the rear tires and provide stability when tripoding.
