Put tires on a balancer and no problem. Realigned front end. nothing. cleaned rotors with 100 grit air sander. Bought new pads. Oh i have 10 runs on this setup. Shimmied 9 times. New bushings new tie rod ends, stock rack. I''m at wits end.,.could front end toe in be wrong for the big block chevy at 122 in 1/8. Stock factory setting on front end specs for alignment. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I'm sure this isn't something only i'm stuck with.
Turn the rotors with an on car brake lathe.
