Should i be concerned about this?

yea so on my recent trip traveling i noticed a few things....

when i step on the gas ((not like whomping it but a lil less then flooring it)) the car veers a lil to the right.... if ya aint holding the wheel with both hands it can surprise ya as in pulling to the right....

when i brake i forget which direction it veers but it veers in that(?) direction....

this is only at highspeeds likes over 45mph it does this. not in every day city normal traffic!


now is this something i should really look into or is this normal ((not normal riding but normal wear and tear for the SRT8's?))

just a disclaimer: im at 3,700 miles as of now.

cheers-

Re: Should i be concerned about this?

i think its called torque steer; when you nail it and it wants to pull one way. its due to the fact that one wheel on each axle is turning.

Re: Should i be concerned about this?

Lowering springs will greatly reduce the torque steer. Rutted and crowned roads are the worse of this conditions evidence by far!

Re: Should i be concerned about this?

swaybar links help this feeling yet I still feel like the SRT is about to fly off when I stomp on it.

Re: Should i be concerned about this?

You may also check the alignment. I've never thought vehicles come dialed in all that well from the factory. I had my Jeep aligned within 2 weeks of buying it, but I'm picky and people tell me that I have "problems", LOL.
