The alignment is even more out of wack right now because of it being so much lower than it usually is. You should hear it on turns....it's soooo awesome!! lol.



Just turn the music down, roll all the windows down - and make fighter jet noises and pretend your a bomber coming in for a run :-D

Actually.....have you seen car tests on the dry skidpad? Tires screeching? That was me in every turn it seemed like. lol. Found out something sorta scary that combined with lowered torsion bars, is probably what caused the screeching. Pics later...camera dead.

hummm... lowered torsion bar, did you upgrade to bigger front brakes? Wondering if somehow your tires are screeching against something on the turn there.. brake lines or somethin?

Misalignment(toe) causes tires to squeek....like the front of the tires are closer to eachother than the back. Or one wheel turned slightly and the other is dead straight. Something like that. The alignment is off currently, but was more off with the bars down.
