Quick Questions

I installed a set of addco bars and now I have a tire wear issue on the rear passenger tire. I know what causes it, the rear bar doesn't allow the IRS to fully function. For example if I pull into a parking lot that has an incline in the entrance my rear passenger tire will not keep contact with the ground or to spin with slight contact with the ground causing extra wear on that tire. What would be my options in fixing this issue?

Thanks
Christopher

I had the package put on at a performance shop here locally. I took them everything that was shipped from Addco and said "Here install it" and they called me back later that day saying that they would have to keep it over night because the front bar was being a pain.

Also the entrance that I am speaking of is a 90 degree turn off a road that is about 2 foot lower than the parking area, and the 2 feet that you have to go up is about a 4 foot distance (if that made sense).


Would the end links be included in the Addco order?

Look at the end of the bars, behind the rear wheels, and see:

How long is the thing from the bar to the lower control arm,

And is it pointing up and down, or at an angle?

Sounds like a travel limitation from the swaybar hitting something...

it should be flat

addco does include new end links.. the question is whether or not you told them you had the lowering kit.. because you would need shorter links

Well actually the money ran out on the lowering kit so I have yet to get it installed. I am still running at original ride height.
