    I'se a here! Suffering at the hands of the enviro-nuts. Been hunting for a new and improved project that passes emissions, so I don't have to thumb it to work in the mornings/forums/images/icons/crazy.gif.

    If the Bear Claw is the same as the older 4Way, it will help with the death wobble, and make the steering feel exponentially better, but by no means will it completely cure it. Using a combination of stiffer shocks, the coilover, and caster adjustment made mine go away - and the new balljoints and rodends on my replacement frontend made it feel even better. The combination has it feeling one step short of rack and pinion/forums/images/icons/smile.gif
