    so i put 2156014 [pilots] tires on the rex, mainly for clearance and to lower my rpm @60mph... i also found pinholes on my front ss brake lines so i went back to stock. then i removed the xmember to get it rewelded because the notch i made for the header was way too big, and i used a torque gun to reinstall the xmember....


    after bleeding the brakes once, i took it out for a spin and when i hit the brake it wants to jump to the left big time. if i dont hold the wheel it will jump 2lanes @60mph ...

    how many times should i bleed the lines?
    should i reinstall the xmember with out the gun and a specific torque?
    alignment?
    i installed an egay camberkit on the right side only, should i go back to stock and buy the ball joint kit?

    i dont drive the car because i cant afford the ins, but i am selling the altima. if i do, ill need the rex for a while..
    any help?
    thanks

    bleed the brakes, you have air so only one side is grabing, plus having a camber kit on one side will make the same difference, go back to stock, make sure all corners are the same.
