Try using a stiff sidewall 29.5/10.5 especially with a car that heavy! I think MT suggests them if the car is over 3400...

Ididn't have any luck with poly bushings, went to solid heim joints and solid bushings. Sounds like you may have a camber issue up front.

We run a 69 chevelle with a SB Nitrous combo and had the same issue, went to 15.5 psi in the 28 X 10.5 stiff wall slicks and the car was much more stable.

X's 2 on the alignment/camber issue.

the lower bars are lakewood lift bars
Does anyone else have a problem with these? What he might be experiencing is roll steer as the severe upward angle of these "lift" bars is allowing the housing to try to drive under the car rather than pushing it. I've suggested to several racers to remove these when they experienced some "skating" on the big end and their problem was cured. I'd say at close to 700 HP, it's time to get rid of these.

I was going to mention the same thing but figured I'd wait for someone else to chime in.
