Default ifs steering feedback

ok - so I need some more ifs edumacation.

Is it normal on toyota ifs to have tons of steering feedback from road surface abnormalities? I wouldn't say that I have bump steer, as on impact, the jolt gets xfer'd to the steering/other side, then the resonance stops.

I do need new shocks/bushings, and I do have my arms cranked up pretty high. I trimmed my upper bump stops which helped to some degree (it was essentially riding on them) but it is still pretty bad.

My steering links seem good, from tre to box. Box is tight with no play. Is this normal?

Normal... for having the arms cranked up so high. The angles of the arms at that height, plus the additional resistance of the torsion bars, means it won't handle nearly the same as it would at factory height. Your idler arm is also going to be under stress, and that is a weak point. All fixable. Or, depending on what you want, the price of entry.

x2 on the cranked arms. You may be able to fix part of it with a new steering stabalizer. Its probably long since worn out, and than can help dampen some of the road "noise" in the steering.
