AEV Geometry Correction vs High Steer Kit
 
I've had the AEV DualSport 2.5" lift for about a year now and I've noticed my steering isn't quite as good as I'd like it to be. I can feel random ticks (not so much vibration) through the wheel during sustained turns in both directions.

My kit didn't come with the geometry correction brackets for the front. What would be the biggest improvement, the geometry correction brackets or the high steer kit?

I know my issue might also be steering related.

I believe the AEV high steer kit only works with their 3.5" and higher lifts.

The impact would hit the brackets instead of the chassis. Made a world of difference..

That would make sense. It didn't specify in the catalog.

Before I bought the AEV 2.5 and correction brackets, I asked AEV and they said the 2.5 would benefit from the brackets. AEV also mentions it in their "Tech Specs" section on their website.

"Must be used on suspensions with 2.5"-5.0" of lift. Minimum of 2.0"


I've had this set up for 15 months and 20+K miles since installation. No problems to date and no more nose dive under hard braking.

Jim

How will the geo brackets cure or even help the issue when turning?
