SVE Bumpsteer Kit.
Correct the suspension geometry, and eliminate bumpsteer on your lowered 1994-04 Mustang, with this SVE bumpsteer kit! When you lower your Mustang, it throws off the factory geometry of your suspension. This leads to uneven tire wear, unpredictable steering, and bumpsteer. This SVE bumpsteer kit will help cure these symptoms and improve handling. The bumpsteer kit replaces your factory tie rods and replaces them with heavy duty, spherical rod ends that adjust and correct your suspension geometry.
This Mustang SVE bumpsteer kit is constructed with high quality materials that are built to last. The spherical rod ends are heavy duty and can handle road racing, drag racing, and daily driving duties. This kit does NOT require you to drill the spindle and includes enough spacers to dial in your suspension. Nylon nuts secure the rod ends to the spindle for a quick and easy installation. This kit has an anodized black finish that looks great on any Mustang.
- This kit fits power steering racks only!

Welcome to my overview and install on SVE’s bump steer kit designed for the 1979 to 1993 Fox Mustang equipped with a power rack.
If you plan on lowering or have already lowered your 94 to 04 SN95 Mustang, then you should consider this bump steer kit from industry leader SVE. This kit is designed to properly correct suspension geometry and eliminate bump steer on your lowered SN95 Mustang.
Every car has bump steer, however when you lower your Mustang you increase the amount of bump steer that occurs because of the changes in toe. Undesirable bump steer is easily noticed whenever you go over bumps because the suspension is steering the car instead of the driver.
This SVE bump steer kit replaces the factory outer tie rods and incorporates heavy duty spherical rod ends for superior performance. Adjustability is extremely easy because of the included spacers which are there to help properly dial in suspension geometry.
The tapered rod end is engineered to the exact specification of the spindle so no drilling or modification is required when installing this kit. Fitment wise, this kit is designed to work with all 1994 to 2004 SN95 Mustangs equipped with a power rack.
To begin the install, support the car via a lift or jack stands.
Remove both front wheels.
Use a pair of needle nose pliers and remove the cotter pin from the outer tie rod.
Loosen and remove the castle nut with an 18mm socket.
Strike the side of the spindle with a hammer or use a joint separating tool to remove the outer tie rod from the spindle.
Do the same for the other side.
Measure the distance from the back side of the outer tie rod where it makes contact with the jam nut to the center point of the tapered stud.
Record this measurement.
Go ahead and measure the other side as well just to make sure it’s the same length.
Slide the tapered stud back in the spindle and then loosen the jam nut.
You’ll want to back off the jam nut just enough to remove the outer tie rod from the inner tie rod.
Remove the outer tie rod from the steering rack.
Place the SVE bump steer assembly on a work bench.
Remove the 24mm nut from the stud and then slide the stud up to achieve a good measurement.
Measure the same distance on the SVE bump steer as you did on the outer tie rod.
Since this kit features a heim joint, you can adjust the overall width.
Back off on the jam nut and adjust the aluminum body.
Once you achieve the measurement recorded earlier, tighten the jam nut.
Install the SVE bump steer assembly onto the outer tie rod.
Thread it all the way until it touches the jam nut or the hiem joint is parallel with the steering rack.
Finger tighten the jam nut.
Slide the tapered stud into the spindle and tighten the 19mm nut just enough to eliminate any play in the stud.
Position the hiem joint onto the stud.
Use the correct assortment of spacers to properly space the bump steer and inner tie rod assembly so that it is parallel with the control arm.
Once you find the correct assortment, remove the hiem joint.
Slide on those spacers, followed by the heim joint, then the remaining spacers.
Lastly, thread on the 24mm nut and torque to 50 lb/ft.
Tighten the jam nut with a series of crescent or open end wrenches.
Then, torque the 19mm nut to 40 lb/ft.
Repeat these steps for the other side.
Get the car on the ground, take it for quick spin, and you’re all finished.
Wrapping things up here, I would recommend setting aside about two hours from start to finish to get this kit installed into your car. Of course, once you complete the install be sure and run it down to your local alignment shop so they can work their magic to get the car properly aligned.
