Baer has developed Baer Tracker adjustable tie rods to eliminate bump steer. Bump steer arises when the suspension is "loaded" as in hard cornering (and especially when one is also braking) and a vertical change in road surface (pot hole, bump, etc.) is encountered. Bump steer causes the car to dart unexpectedly. This is not only unsettling and undesirable, but also dangerous. Bump steer occurs especially when changes to the steering geometry, such as caster, camber or static ride height have been altered.
Baer Trackers feature hardened chromoly tie rod pins with a threaded extension at the base of the taper. This fits through a Teflon lined rod end (again, chromoly) and is height adjustable with use of machined spacers provided in Baer Tracker packages. Baer Trackers can easily be installed by an alignment shop and they will virtually eliminate bump steer.
