    So I've always been curious. What does that evo delete consist of?

    I made a post a while back how to keep the box but “bypass the sensor”

    Caster is not correct, you might also find a place that can do 4 wheel alignment. If the rear end is skewed some it will road walk pretty bad

    That is correct. If the system is already stuck in full boost and your unplug that sensor on the column, you shouldn't see any change.

    How about disconnecting the opposite end of the system though? I haven't truly experimented with this and it's been forever, but it seemed like when I bought my '98 3500 crew cab wrecker with the -badly- worn front end (serious ball joint droop) from lots of abuse, steel 19.5" "Frito" wheels and super bald, heavy tires, and Ranch Hand front bumper.. I drove it home 400 miles from where I bought it and it was a disaster. Held the steering wheel literally with my my thumb and one finger because any more input would have it changing lanes instead of just keeping it straight. Discovered the connector to the pump had frayed, shorted wires. I simply unplugged it at the pump and it seemed more bearable afterwards.

    Good question...

    I'd expect the same result as unplugging the column sensor, but your experience seems to indicate otherwise. If that does create a different result, that could be really useful for troubleshooting.

    Did you know there are knockouts that need to be removed in the upper control arm to adjust the caster/camber? If they didn't do that, then all they did was adjust the toe, and that means your caster is all out of whack.

    I speak from experience, I just did a 5/7 drop on a 2500.
