HELLO. IM NEW TO HYDRAULICS AND ALL. I HAVE A 85 BBUICK REGAL WITH A TWO PUMP 9 BATTERY SET UP. WHEN I LOCK UP THE REAR END IT SEEMS LIKE THE REAR OF THE CAR KICKS OUT TO ONE SIDE MORE THAN THE OTHER. MEANING THE TIRE STICKS OUT OF THE FENDER WELL ON ONE SIDE.
MY QUESTION BEING HOW DO I FIX THAT AND HOW MUCH DOES IT USUALLY COST TO FIX. I NEED IT DONE ASAP. THANKS EVERYONE. KEEP LOWRIDING...

Sounds like bad bushings, or if you have adjustable trailing arms they are not even.

I notice that on some cars. Beginning to wonder if the factory 4 does that.

if not, bad bushings, bent parts, or just shoddy suspension work,

I'd say shoddy work. Look at how the cylinders are attached to the rearend.

Yes definetly. It looks like the cylinders are at least 14" and if no mods were done it could have bent the lower trailing arms

AH IS THAT A HYME JOINT ON THE BACK??? IF THAT IS TRUE, THERE IS YOUR PROBLEM RIGHT THERE. AND MORE THEN LIKELY YOU HAVE EITHER BENT UPPER TRAILING ARMS, OR TWEAKED THE MOUNTINGS. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU MAKE A BRIDGE FOR THAT, AND MOUNT THE POWERBALLS ON THEM.

looks like u might have more problems then just ur heims. like mentioned before. u might have bent a mount or an arm. or buckled the bridge.. id inspect all of it, to make sure its tight and safe..
