Default bump steer kit on steel wheel carriers ?

hello ,

has anyone fitted the uniball bump steer kit to the steel wheel carriers rather than replacing them by the evo alluminium ones ? I understand one fits at the top and the other underneath, does it fit and does it resolve the bump steer problem ? Thanks for your comments

It won't correct bump steer due to the angle of the steering arms on the OEM 964 hub carriers.

EVO tie-rods and hub carriers were designed to work together to correct the steering geometry on a low car. While not adjustable, one can install ERP's outers to the EVO inners to afford a measure of adjustment.

While not adjustable
A lathe helps in getting to where you want...

I think custom-made (properly bent) tie-rods mounted underneath (instead of above) the steering arms of the OEM hub carriers could be a solution.

Geoffrey you mean make the right spacer with a lathe, do you think it would work (as well as with evo upright) if fited on top, to correct bump steer?
