    When I hit a rough spot in the road, my blazer darts off course a little. Everything up front is real tight, so I was wondering if this is "bump steer"? The steering link between the steering gear and the steering arm isn't quite level. It is 1 or 2 inches high at the front. I think the lift is about 2 inches. I think the steering arm is stock. Do you experienced guys think this could be the problem. Do I need a different steering arm?
    Thanks

    I've got a 4" lift with a raised steering arm and if I hit a bump hard enough I get the same thing. Quite honestly I don't even notice it anymore. The straighter the drag link is at ride height the less bump steer you should have. Of course the ultimate fix would be a crossover set-up [​IMG]
