Bumpsteer in I-beam non ford

Generally speaking; all bumpsteer is bad on a street car. The car should only turn when you decide to move the steering wheel. With the steering system you have it can be difficult to eliminate all the bump steer. Visualize the steering link attached to the pitman arm when you are going straight down the road. When you hit a bump, the axle moves up, and unless the trailing arms that locate your axle are parallel to, and move in, the same arc as the steering link, you will get bump steer. So if your steering link is dramatically either longer or shorter than the trailing arms, unless you want to rework your steering or suspension, you got what you got.
