It is a front splitter, it helps in creating downforce and cutting the air that traps and creates drag.

1995 Toyota Corolla DX. 305k miles and still going. I put about 100 miles on it a day. She's getting tired though. I want to retire her soon.

FWD get it because of open diffs and un-equal length axles. Nothing to do with the steering axis.
So if you didn't burnout you would be ok? If it had nothing to do with steering axis. Ford and GM have wasted some serious money on r&d and marketing.

2004 BMW X3. While slow, it is one of the best handling vehicles I have driven.



Other vehicles I have owned (sort of going back in time here):
1998.5 SVT Contour with 3.0L Swap
2002 Subaru WRX
1999 Lincoln Navigator
1999 SVT Contour with 3.0L Swap
1998 SVT Contour
2000 Subaru Legacy GT
1995 Contour SE
1992 Eagle Talon N/T
1994 Mercury Tracer
1992 Geo Prism

That first 3.0L Contour was not a slow vehicle and it handled like a dream. I miss that car so much.

You might be able to mask it by changing the steering axis. But it is caused by having 1 wheel spin faster or apply more torque than the other wheel. This is normally caused by having axles of different length and the same diameter, because the axle will deflect torsionally and the longer one will deflect more, meaning that right when you hit the gas the wheel on the longer axle doesn't spin as much as the shorter axle and torque steer.

I haven't even started modding my jeep.

I finally got it drivable again, and I need to get new u-joints sooner or later.

And to let you know, I'm replacing parts after 30 years. But it runs strong

First mod though, honestly, I think it's fine as it is.
