Need Help: Understeer with KYB AGX shocks
I got half of my shocks in today at toyota, the front struts...now while my first turn into a main street i noticed that i had to turn my steering wheel 1/4 of the way in order to make a right/left... already i feel as if i dont lke it, i used to the sensive feeling what can i do ?!!?

thats right i only have the front shocks on, the back has not been installed yet, but will i still have this problem when the set has completely installed ?? help me !! if its liek this i may have to return the item.. confused

If I am correct, understeer is when the front tires make a larger turing arch than the rear wheels which could mean that the front tires loose traction and slide while the rear tires keep traction. Is this what is occuring?

I think it might just be in your head, unless your steering was altered.
