S13 pulling one way

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

 

Been having this issue of the car pulling to the left after a 100kms of driving from a wheel alignment twice. I already used 3 different sets of wheels and tyres and it still doing the same pulling to the left . Drives beautifully until it start slowly pulling to the left more and more gradually. Just wondering what the possible issue that can cause this?

 

I posted earlier having a twitchy rear end but a full alignment solved that and drives beautifully except for it pulling to the left now. If anyone read and followed the thread i mentioned i have a s14 rear subframe, s14 front upright and just coilovers as suspension mods. I got my original steering rack replaced with a good condition s14 one as well and the tie rods appear to be in good shape but i forgot what was necessary to be used to do s14 upright swap as i remember s13 dont fit and s14 ones are too long and im pretty sure its a oem atm. I didnt do this swap so i have no idea

 

Thanks in advance!

Adjustable castor arms or even adjustable bushes in the stock arms will most likely solve this issue.

The chassis having 180k kms and being 25years old im not surprised if using new castor arms will solve it. Actually i just read up its most likely castor arms/tension rod as you guys has mentioned i just remember sometimes car pulls to the right while braking as well.

 

Will replace it and report how it goes. Any particular brands i should be looking at? And is the nvh significant using pillow ball ones

I've never had stock or pillow ball bushings in my car, so I can't compare NVH.

My car came with non-adjustable polyurethane bushes in the stock caster arms.

I recently purchased some Hardrace caster arms with hardened rubber bushings.

I'm yet to install them, but they appear to be of good quality.

They're also available with pillow ball joints.

Keep in mind pillow balls wear out much faster.

Is the car your daily or predominantly a track car?

Mainly a street car with track days few times a year. I already have solid subframe in the rear but it isnt as bad as i thought but i might just get poly ones just to keep the nvh as it is.

I was jap all the way for arms, but just did first drive in my new build with Hardrace rubber bushed adjustable arms. as car is street only

Fells nice on the street than my 15 with Yananck and cusco arms though it, both of them running softer than the usual 8/6 spring rates ( s13 is 6/4 and s15 was 6/4.5)
