Front or rear. We keep the front ones. But it sounds to me more like a tyre issue. What tyres do you have on the back? What size wheels do you have?

i think its the rear one as there was a gap between the bush and the big washer that compresses it, but looking at the road response pack it could be the front one`s that are fooked. rear tyres are new avon zz3 245-35-19 at 38psi. same on front but 36psi. it looks like its standard suspension. looks like woody`s been busy there are new drop links + bushes and track rod ends have been changed.

There is your answer to your oversteering. Get a pair of Michelin Pilot supersports on there or Pirelli P Zero rossos. No more oversteer. You dont want to be changing bushes while you have those on there!
