why is it that ford eb...ed steering follows road camber so strongly...later models eg. ef...el ..seem to track easier on heavily cambered roads and do not require hardly any input to keep in a straight line.
Is there any mod for the ed to to improve on this obvious design fault
ps I have aligners tell me that later models were built with substantial inbuilt caster to improve this problem

I don't have any probs with mine...although I have Genuine Ford camber kits with SuperPro bushings, EL XR6 springs, Pedders GSR shockies and a 30mm front sway bar and a 27mm rear sway bar, and all bushes are SuperPro.

your tyres can have a huge effect on how the car steers and tracks aswell..
