*Definition of bumpsteer: Bumpsteer is a change in toe angle (wheel angle) caused by the suspension moving up or down. Bump-steer is built into the geometry of the suspension and steering system, and has nothing to do with turning the steering wheel. The effect of bump-steer is for the wheel to toe-in or toe-out when the suspension moves up or down. This toe change or “steering” occurs any time the suspension moves, whether it is from body roll, brake-dive, or hitting a bump in the road. Bump steer is undesirable because the suspension is steering the car instead of the driver. Bumpsteer happens in each wheel, independent of the other wheel, causing excess drag on the car as the wheels steer in differing directions.
