I have two pumps to the front with a x block and one dump. Both springs up front are the same as well as tire air pressure. My car always hops to the right and its very annoying, What would cause this? I do have 3 more shims in the right control arm compared to the left but that was just to make the camber even, could that cause it?

:uh: The only thing I can say is, get used to it. Just about every car I've ever seen moves to one side or the other when hopping.
My Expedition moves to the left as I hop it. My boy's Coupe DeVille moves to the right..........

Make sure your rear is fully locked and even.. and make sure you tie your steering wheel down so that its straight....driver seatbelt works good.

today i measured from ground to fender and the right side sits about 1/2inch higher than the left,,,,now i would think that if the right side sits higher that it would turn towards the left while hopping. does anyone agree?

tire pressue has to be the same, and the springs have to be cut the same and be sitting the same. Try playing with your tire pressure for starters, may be an easy fix for ya.
