Quick update. My car has been at Ford for 6+ weeks now. They replaced every bearing and bushing in the trans and got a new tail housing, and when putting it back together a burr caught a bushing on...

Gotta love the easy and overlooked fix. Now go fry those tires off since you'll have zero wheel-hop! :icon_beerchug:

No, pinion angle will not cause torque steer. Are you certain that you got all of the components in the correct place and tightened up with nothing crooked?

If so, then it could be related to...

I used J&M extreme lowers because of the spherical joint on the axle side. It helps with articulation and prevents binding. I am lowered and also used relocation brackets. I've been happy with my...

IMHO I think S197's are awful in the snow with the stock pirelli's. These cars are manageable with dedicated snow tires. Anything more than a couple of inches and its best to just stay home. I...

OP, get rid of the stripes on the side, lower the car to get rid of 4x4 look, and tint the windows for a more aggressive look.

From what I have heard most people seem to think that whichever they changed first UCA vs LCA's seems to make the biggest impact on wheel hop.

No, there is no value at all. Mail order tunes are OK for basic bolt-ons. When you go forced induction there are a lot more variables that are best addressed by a Dyno tune. Some mail order tuners...

Yes, you should get a custom DYNO tune. This would be recommended for any Forced Induction setup. Also, definitely go to 93 octane tune. Where do you live that they don't sell 91 octane? I've...

I got it now. I did not realize that Whiteline called the UCA adjustable. The crush ring in the middle of the yellow bushing is eccentric. You can rotate it around to adjust the UCA to the length...

Gotcha, I was under the impression that you were installing adjustable UCA. That is non-adjustable. It will be fine for stock ride height. You didn't list LCA as a mod on your car. Is that an...

My first suggestion is Driver Mod. You can't just go WOT on these cars and expect to get traction on the street.

Intake and Tune will just make your lack of traction worse. Control arms will...

It sounds like you have 2 separate issues. Get the car to the dealer, ASAP. The only way to know if it will be covered is to have them look. I don't have any experience with the leaking pinion...

Wanna trade for outlaws? lol. I think the interior noise would only be worse in a hardtop. I love the sound with the top down. With it up, not so much between 1800 - 2000 RPM.

Try dropping the tire pressure. I found that I had more consistent 60' times on stock tires with tire pressure around 22 PSI. They were still pretty awful at ~1.90-2.00 seconds.
