Turning radius fail
 
...... first, i must note that I have fat fingered this post twice, and completely deleted the thread, twice. Try #3....

My lifted laredo on 255-70-18's was awesome, it had an amazing turning radius. I could put other cars and SUV's to shame!

The SRT is..... well.... NOT. It's a SEMI! ESPECIALLY when trying to back into a spot! I've been spoiled by the laredo so much that i STILL find myself having to correct multiple times with the SRT.

What's the deal? Wider front tires? Shorter steering stops? Am I crazy?:slapfight:

Nothing is different but the wheels/tires and the shocks/springs......

Have the same rack/pinion and same turns to lock so besides wheels/tires and suspension nope haha. Id bet that its a bit stiffer and harder to turn from a stop due to the wheels/tires and drop so maybe its taking more effort on your part than the old power steering required thus throwing off "your" turn to eye coordination :confused:

nope, it definately has a completely different turn radius. From lock to lock, it doesnt turn as hard as the laredo did

Yeah, my WK with 32" tires whip into tight spots. I never turn the wheel at full lock though because that's when the pump strains and when the tires rub.

Only rubbed the tires once when my sister drove it.

The SRT turns like a semi?? LOL



I suppose it's all relative.....I generally drive 20-21' trucks so in comparison the SRT is great. My Reg Cab Tacoma will turn much nicer though.

well not like a semi, but definitely not as good as my laredo. That's all i was saying.

haha i still love the SRT, WAY more.

Wow! This sounds like a complaint almost worthy of being in the WK2 section! :rolleyes:
