Short Course 3/2/2011CONDITIONS THAT CAN INCREASE TORQUE STEER
Any or all of the following conditions can aggravate an existing torque steer problem as well as cause it to appear in a FWD vehicle that previously didn't experience torque steer:
Unequal front tire inflation pressure side to side
Unequal camber (the car will pull towards the side with the greatest amount of positive camber).
Toe misalignment (both static toe or toe-out when steering).
Unequal caster side-to-side
Incorrect ride height (nose too high).
Misalignment between the transaxle, driveshafts and chassis.
Front tires with unequal wear.
Loose or worn wheel bearings
Looseness or worn parts in the steering linkage or rack.
Worn or loose control arm bushings
Control arm bushings that are too soft and allow too much movement under load
Excessive front wheel offset (deep dish aftermarket wheels)
Rear axle misalignment
A dragging brake caliper on one side
Increased engine torque (hopping up the engine in a FWD car that already has a torque steer problem will make torque steer worse).
