  • Torque steer?

    Well i did the auto to manual swap a few weeks ago and ever since then I have really bad torque steer. I had the entire engine craddle removed from the car so my thoughts were that now maybe i need an alignment so i went and got one but they said it wasnt off at all. so now im confused, its bad all the time no matter how much i get on it or just driving like grandma. could it be a diff. problem? every thing was fine till i did the swap??? thanks for any help

    Torque steer = Only when accelerating. Is this true? It only pulls to one side on acceleration and not while cruising?

      sounds like something is still loose if it happens anytime you touch throttle.

            might want to check out tie rods and ball joints.

            if it were a motor mount, i would think more of wheel hop, unles the fucker is really crooked. but yeah, an alignment wouldnt be a bad idea

              i did get one done they said everything was fine. Are the trans mounts the exact same for the auto and the manual cause i used the same ones and it seemed like they didnt want to just fall in place i kinda had to force them in there spots (pry bar). but the motor looks straight its not at a angle that i can tell.

                did you use the mount bracket for the manual trans? the only differences were the mount brackets between the auto and manual. the actual mount itself is the same.

                    yeah i used the manual trans bracket. I was thinking today and i was wondering if maybe the engine cradle might not be straight but i dont know if that would effect anything.
