    I have a 2006 GMC Yukon with 237k miles on it now. As soon as I get my Trailblazer back I am making TONS of changes to my Yukon. My question is it feels loose and wonders on the road and also suffers bump steer. It is lowered with adjusted torsion bars and has some temporary Titan 18" wheels with about a 28.5" tall tire. I would like to end up with a tight feeling direct fullsize SUV to match the motor going in. What all should I look at replacing/improving so the steering matches the wheels brakes and engine. I attached an imagine of what it currently looks like. Thanks

    Lowering by adjusting the torsion bars is the worse possible thing you can do for proper suspension operation. They’re designed to be under a certain amount of tension. Adjust them back and get drop knuckles and that will probably fix most of your problems. Replace control arms with worn bushings or ball joints, make sure the pitman and idler arms don't have play, and adjust the over-center on the gear.
