You'll have to get the toe set properly. If you are toed out just a little bit, he steering will feel very loose.

Spin the tie rods in a turn and see if that helps, but go get an alignment.

Ditto to what was said above. Excessive toe out will make the steering very sensitive to movements away from center.

You'll probably need a full alignment as camber probably also changed when you installed the 5 lug spindles.

Are you now, or possibly in the future, planning on converting to coil-overs? If yes, then Maximum Motorsport for sure, if no, then any brand name should be good to go, just avoid no name ebay specials.

If you think coilovers are in your future then go with CC plates fabricated in steel,NOT aluminum.
Also,if Maximum Motorsports cc plates are not in your budget then save a bit longer and wait until they show up on their "Deal of the Day" sale that's happening this time of the year.

God luck

I am glad you knew how to do astring alignment so you were not looking at the cost of a new pair of tires in a short time. With all the changes parts, it’s surprising it went down the road even that well before adjustments.
When I was looking at CC plates ten years ago, I took into account the top bushing/bearing material and if they were meant for lowered cars or not. If you do not have it lowered, are street driving, AND do not have alignment range of adjustment issues, the stock ones may be your best choice. Otherwise, the cheapest aftermarket ones are not likely to be what you want. I like these because of the poly bushing for enthusiastic street driving, not a spherical, metal one. They also look good and mount the strut higher for lowered cars So the strut is closer to the middle of it’s intended use range. The instructions do not specify what to do left or right, and BBK’s phone rep that day did not know what to tell the alignment shop pro, but putting them in the same has worked well. I am not sure this is the best price, but I like LMR’s catalog.
