Hi all,

after mounting a +65 mm lift kit now the jimny tends to the left and the caster is -4 /- 5 °, despite I have to fit the caster correction bushes on front control arm
Could the wrong caster be the cause of the tendency to go left ?
thank you and happy New Year

Have you adjusted the steering bars to accommodate the lift? And also did your ki include longer panhard bars to recenter the axles to the thrust axis of the car?

I am no expert on this sorry.
Your pulling left is possibly a sticking brake caliper
Could also be a damaged flexi brake pipe down to the caliper (collapsed internally)
uneven tyre where

I don't think so, as the wheels are free to turn and the brake hoses are new
news tyres.....
