Any progress on this Ash? I'm sure I've seen them on the net before. Craig L had some made for his V8 Z, I've got the artical he wrote up that supplies all the details. Pretty sure it will be posted very soon on the articals section of front page, will check.

Re drill the holes in your front cross member. By relocating your hole up some 40mm or so and out slightly this will adjust your roll centre. I and many others have done this to there cars.

This is how my car looks fixing the bump steer problem. You can see I don't have any plates to correct the roll centre. This is because the inner control arm has been relocated up some 40mm. Sorry no picture of that as the splash pan is in the way.

Very neat Craig. We do have an artical Craig has written on this topic complete with pics and we are hoping to post at some point in the near future.

One thing I forgot to mention earlier,

 

If you don't want to re-drill the holes then try Noltec for bushes.  I got adjustable rear castor/toe bushes through them.  Not sure if they do adjustable front ones or not.

not flaming,

 

but i had some new but old tc rod bushes from noltec and the split and fell out with just 3 hard laps around the block testing everything out, dropped the nolathan redies in (used) and still no dramas!!!

 

 

just me exp so far, and yes noltec do/did make rear adj bushes but havent investigated lately.

That's damn unlucky!  Haven't seen any signs of wear/damage on mine.

 

Pulled half a second of my laps time when I put them in too  ;)
