Bump Steer Delete Tie Rod Kit (BSD) ™ Can Am X3 DS - Shock Therapy - Can-Am
Can Am X3 DS Bump Steer Delete (BSD)™ Tie Rod Kit (Patented geometry location. Patent # 9,988,083 B1)
Our new BSD™ Tie rod kit is here and does wonders for your Can Am X3 DS. Through rigorous testing of our shop car, we found that the X3 DS had a lot of steering wheel feed back in the whoops especially if you run a larger tire and turning in the whoops. After cycling the front suspension we found over 4 inches of bump steer in the factory system. Bump steer is a change in toe setting (front of tires closer together than the rear of the tires) through the cycle of front suspension travel. The best set up is as close to zero toe change as possible. If your front tires change toe setting they are essentially doing the same thing as you turning the steering wheel slightly on every bump you hit. Bump steer is one of the biggest contributors to steering wheel feedback, twitchy drive ability, excessive front end wear and worn out forearms from trying to keep the car straight. So in an effort to eliminate all of these things we developed our BSD (bump steer delete) tie rod kit for the X3 DS. Our kit relocates the outer tie rod pivot point which changes the front end geometry and lowers the factory 4 inch bump steer measurement down to just 3/8 of an inch! With the bump steer removed the car is much easier to drive, steer and control. What used to be a two handed steering wheel grab to hold the car in whoops is now just a few fingers on one hand. Your front end parts will last longer. Your car will drive more predictably. Your forearms will have no arm pump. The whole driving experience will become easier.

THIS KIT IS DESIGNED TO FIX THE GEOMETRY OF THE FACTORY ARM CONFIGURATION. IT IS NOT DESIGNED FOR ANY AFTERMARKET ARM SYSTEM.
The factory car has ZERO adjust ability for alignment other than toe set. Caster and Camber can NOT be adjusted. Toe adjustment with our BSD kit will not affect any other aspect of the alignment since nothing else is adjustable.
