Great, thanks!

I followed your recommendations and did a search in the forum... found lots of info. Also, touched base with Trevor from Rovah Farm and he's going to get back to me on this.

Who's this Keith RT? ...where can I find him? I'll give him a call too.

Thanks,
Punter

I'll drop him a line... thanks for the tips.

No problem; good luck! The rear disc conversion and the Scorpion racing HD rear sway bar are two best mods I've done to the 110.

Right on!

Hey, this reminds me of question that I need to ask of everyone:

When changing to rear disc, should the front/rear hydraulic pressure change (brake modulator??)? I ask because when I really get on the brakes (oh sh*t traffic quick stop), she darts left and right.

the darting under braking might be .. uuhh (mental block) control arms.. no. The axle locating arms that bolt to the framerails and run front to back (forgot their name - DOH)... trailing arms? whatever their name, it could be the bushings in these rods.

haha some help I am!

Thanks for the suggestion Steve, but the third best mod I've done to her is replacing all the suspension bushings....including the trailing arms. The originals were so bad that the center ring just about fell out upon removal! She drives nice and tight now. Errr, except for that darting thingy.

Sorry for the highjack. Didn't mean too, honest.

Is that just happening where you are braking or also where you try to turn?
If not turn, then, how bad is it when you brake (medium, not too hard, just medium), release the steering wheel, does it go straight or tend to go left or right?
What happens if you load the rear (big bag of ..... hum.... sand/gravel would do)?

If the wheel is turned one way or the other (even just slightly) and I brake HARD (i.e. exiting on an offramp too fast!), it'll dart the way the wheel is turned. If the wheel is straight and I brake hard, it's usually OK. Well, I usually have the dogs in back (~500lbs!)...

Did you replace the bushing on the panhard rod? (or any of the steering rods)

I ASSume that the DAP kit I had installed included that, but I'll double check. Thanks for the pointer!
