Don’t you have hydro assist?  How does your wheel come off center with hydro assist?  I haven’t had that happen, and I drive like you Do!

  

The first time I still had stock steering and bent it. The second time I snapped the drag link end and didn’t get it perfectly straight with the trail fix. The third time the zip tie broke off and the wires rubbed raw against the tire on the freeway.

There won’t be a fourth time since I can flip the kill switch now. 🙂

Sounds like you need better zip ties, have you tried bailing wire?

New center crossmember is in, and evap canister relocated above rear axle. I think I lost a half inch of clearance replacing the crushed crossmember. And don’t mind the duct tape on the evap canister. A new one is on order.

Kevin, those canisters are readily available. When I replaced mine, several dealers had them. Will your suspension stop before it comes in contact with the canister? If not, may be a good idea to make it do so, for peace of mind.

All of the relocation kits I have seen put it above the axle in that location. If my axle gets that high, I likely have bigger problems. Dealers want $195. Found it online for $140 and free shipping. It’s on its way. 🙂

My canister is in the same location. You can’t hit it, even with the axle fully compressed.

Good departure angle on that choice. Congrats on the upgrade Kevin!
