    Ball joint extender bumpsteer.

    Problem solved. I made a bolt on thick steel adapter bracket to lower the upper wishbone to correct the suspension geometrics which also made it possible to set camber settings to GT40 specs. Bumpsteer gone, fabulous to drive now. Thanks all who contributed to this solution.
