Turning Radius Problem

Submitted on 2011/09/10 at 11:15 am

I have a 1995 GMC witha 4/6 drop installed, which includes droped spindles,coils and a flip kit and c notch. I have lost a lot of my turning radius, it seems that the tierods are in the way, I have stock wheels and tires. Is there a part that i need to get to fix my problem? or do I have to get bigger wheels and tires? or smaller wheels and tires?

Jose,

Your turning radius issue is most likely caused by the factory wheels. They make contact with the factory control arms when your turn limiting your turning radius! Don’t worry though, you can carefully grind some relief in your control arms or even better move up to larger wheels. It is a common problem with your truck to have this issue with spindles making contact with the factory lower control arm and solved usually by upgrading to 18″ wheels!
