    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?

    Still do passenger side in the front pics but had to disconnect the steering because mine turns all the way even at full droop ;)

    Didn't fall apart just a prototype that handled like ass then I wanted some revisions Batch Racing disappeared phone cut off and websites gone. You get what you pay for

    What he said "hella bump steer". I work and Nate stops by every so often with a ton of bread lol

    Steer!


    (sorry had to do it.:eek:)

    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.:cool:
