It's called BUMPSTEER from having lowered your steering rack 2 inches.

Same issue I will have.

You need bumpsteer spacers.

I haven't purchased anything just yet.

I intend to, I'm just waiting for the shop to at least get the stupid car RUNNING first before I throw in additional parts into the mix.

The problem with the KS Racing "kit" is that it also lowers the mounts for the lower control arms so it completely destroys the suspension geometry. You won't be able to fix it with spacers. You need a different mounting kit.

Yeah, I looked at that kit a while ago and I couldn't even figure out how you can screw the nuts and bolts back on to reattach the subframe through those 2" spacers.
