Ok. My SS pulls side to side over wavy or bumpy roads. When i had the 15's on the car it was fine . never went side to side. But when i put my SS wheels on thats when the problem occurs.Ive swap the the tires around also.

is it the idler arm? front shocks were done in 08?alignment (done in 07)? ball joints?tie rods?

could be the width of the tires, and the crown of the road. My Imp does the same thing with the stockers on, but with the 9C1 wheels its fine.

Just to be safe, check your alignment best you can. If its darting could be anything, I'm taking mine next week to the alignment shop just to be sure.

FYI: I believe the car had both tie rods replaced within the last 5K miles before you bought it.

What kind of tires are on the SS wheels? I read someplace that people were getting that from the BFG KDWs.

I think my brother's Roadmaster did this when he put wider tires on SS wheels on it, but I'm not certain. Might be an idler arm issue or something that gets more apparent with wider tires?

The ss wheels will uncover any excessive play in your suspension.

If they are BFG's, that's your problem right there. Had 3 sets and they ALL did that. Effin HATED those tires!

Run Moog problem solver parts, energy suspension or PST front end kit.
