Definetly did not notice that...I am guessing the kit fell apart due to the shitty construction and put together of it though (I know that from other peoples post to a thread I had regarding their kits..)

I think shocktaco had the batch kit, but it had hella bump steer, and he tried fixing it but returned it to Batch. Motoxdoer (Nate) knows shocktaco pretty well and they were both working on it. OP am I correct?

Not sure how to fix that, man. It's got to do with the geometry between the suspension and the tie rod changing through the travel, but once again I dont know how to fix it. Best I can say is match the factory geometry of everything.
