SCAREY HANDLING

Recommended Posts

Hi i recentley bought an 1997 disco, however when slowing down from speed it seems to veer a bit to the right, also when breaking it pulls a bit to the right. Im not sure where to start with this as the disco is pretty modded. Its got pro comp lift, correction arms on front and rear, disslocation cones, recip tyres (horrible things).What i have noticed on inspection is.

1 Rear anti roll bar removed

2 A braded hose on left front caliper, and a rubber on right caliper ??

I was thinking pre load on swivle bearings as i have done them before, but could it be the 2 points i have noticed as well. would putting an antiroll bar back on be advisable with a 5 inch lift?

Thanks in advance for any input, i have got a few probs with this truck but this is my main concern.

I would look at bushes as said principally the two front ones from the caster arm to the chassis and also look and see if you have a sticky caliper which could induce a brake bias there.

I doubt the issue lies with preload or the suspension in general as this is the same both sides. The anti roll bar will no be missed in a straight line and at 5 inch lift a standard one would seriously limit your downtravel. The difference in pipes wont make any difference if they are both working though with a 5 inch lift I would check they are both upto spec in length and if possible move to braded on the other but as a pressured system both should be carrying the same pressure.

Sounds like rear radius arm bush to me too, so giving a bit of rear wheel steering. look the big bush at the end if there is a space between the metal and the rubber it's only a few mm then its due for replacing.
