Another negative side effect of lowering your Mitsubishi Evolution 8/9 can be the induction of bump-steer. Bump-steer is the concept of bumps or imperfections in the road causing a car to steer off-track on its own without any driver input. This is described by many EVO drivers as needing constant direction correction when steering over a bump. This annoying and sometimes even dangerous effect is the result of poor suspension geometry when a vehicle is lowered below factory specs. Many Evo 8/9 owners simply learn to live with this issue, but that is no longer necessary.
Whiteline has developed their Evo specific tie rod replacement, known as the bump-steer correction kit. The bump-steer correction kit extends the factory front end tie-rods to keep the axles at nearly the same distance from the frame at the steering box, eliminating axle tilt and subsequently curing bump-steer. This kit is specifically designed to work in conjunction with the Whiteline roll-center kit and is highly recommended for any and all lowered Evolutions especially those that see daily or any street driving.
