What is bump steer and how does it affect drivability? Bump steer is a change in toe setting (front of tires closer together than the rear of the tires) through the cycle of front suspension travel. And the simple answer to the second question is that it negatively affects just about every aspect of off-road riding!

Shock Therapy's Bump Steer Delete Tie Rod Kit does wonders for your Can-Am Maverick X3. Through rigorous testing, the wizards at Shock Therapy found that their X3 RS had a lot of steering wheel feedback in the whoops, especially if running a larger tire and turning in the whoops. After cycling the front suspension, they found over 4 inches of bump steer in the factory system. (FOUR INCHES!) The best set up is as close to zero toe change as possible. If your front tires change toe setting, they are essentially doing the same thing as you turning the steering wheel slightly on every bump you hit. Bump steer is one of the biggest contributors to steering wheel feedback, twitchy drivability, excessive front-end wear and worn-out forearms from trying to keep the car straight. So, to eliminate all of these things Shock Therapy developed the BSD tie rod kit for the X3.

This kit relocates the outer tie rod pivot point, which changes the front end geometry and lowers the factory 4-inch bump steer measurement down to just 3/8 of an inch! With the bump steer removed, the car is much easier to drive, steer and control. What used to be a two-handed steering wheel grab to hold the car in whoops is now just a few fingers on one hand. Your front-end parts will last longer. Your car will drive more predictably. Your forearms will have no arm pump. The whole driving experience will become easier.

EVP & SHOCK THERAPY DISCLAIMER: This kit is designed to fix the geometry of the factory A-arm configuration. All aftermarket A-arm configurations produce a different amount of bump steer. ***BUMP STEER MUST BE MEASURED PRIOR TO INSTALLATION OF THE KIT.***
