Any reason why you chose S13 front, and how are you going to tune out the bump-steer?

well first for the big brakes, more angle, more track and a ton of parts available ( i now there is alot for 86 too :P ) and love more the disk over hub setup than under-hub.

as for the bumper steer ill know when i get to drive it, the alignement guy might help me with that. now ill be running early datsun bluebird 910 trx tie rod end. maybe ill need t3 with spherical joints, dont know yet... do you recommend anything?
