Steering query

As a new owner of a Revolt (from Downunder Sports Buggies) I was wanting to know is this a cause for concern and has anyone got a solution to the problem? I would appreciate any suggestions.

Re: Steering query

It looks like you're getting more suspension droop, than normal. Here's a few ideas, things to check.
Measure the length of your shocks, and compare them to one another.
Check your camber angle. Are you're tires sitting vertical or are the tops tipped in towards the car? Use a bubble level to check this. Make sure the floor is flat and level, before adjusting anything.
Take some measurements from Mick's car and compare them to yours.
A-arms, steering rods, shocks, shock mounts, etc.

"passenger" side? I have the same issue. I am trying to sort this out as well. I will keep you posted if I figure it out before you guys do.

Re: Steering query

Baz is that your drivers side or their drivers side ??? Remember our US mates drive on the wrong side of the road and for some reason their steering wheels & dash are in front of the passenger seat !!! go figure !!!
Give me a ring if you want to compare some measurments, yours does look slightly worse then mine, bit hard to tell with out seeing it in person !
Bearfoot & Sandracer, thanks for helping out our man Baz
Jerry it wasnt there as Bazz's buggy was purchased with only 7 mile by us from Redline, its 1 of the 08's

Good point Mick. Lets call my issue on drivers right. I think I found my problem. I was missing one of the spacers that is between the lower a-arm and the rack& pinion. I took the whole front end apart and switched the lower a-arms like Jared at Redline suggested. Did not really notice the spacer was missing until I switched them back. I left the the bolts running thriough the lower a-arm and the rack loose until I had everything else tight and noticed the missing spacer. Now, I left the spacers out on BOTH sides and with it loose I am not getting the binding anymore and it does not seem to be rubbing the a-arm like you are getting anymore. I have not tightened down the last 2 bolts yet. If it binds when I do I will know what the problem is. So I would check your rack&pinion position. I am not sure if was pitched out of level or pinched at an angle from the misssing spacer. But this could be your issue as well. I would just take those 2 bolts loose and see if it goes away for you. Keep us posted and I will update when I have a final conclusion. Good Luck.
