Alignment issues could be it but it sounds more like bump steer.

Either way you should have spent some money on halfway decent coils. I would take Taiwanese stuff over these, and that's saying a lot coming from me lol.

Even after the alignment, my car is really twitchy. Its worse when its well below freezing and the suspension is extra stiff....

It can be a real bear driving at highway speeds, in a straight line. Always has been like that... And supposedly my alignment is fine. I usually go for two hands if I see some unavoidable potholes.

Well I had horrible toe in note the horrible random torque like steer and now it's aligned and drives like a dream! It doesn't bounce too much either. Great handling too! But in three days it ruined a set of new tires to the belts

I don't even know how that's possible. Your car must have been so pigeon footed it looked broken.

Seriously I'm having trouble figuring how that's even possible... How was your suspension geometry so screwed up you belted BRAND NEW TIRES in three days? Were you doing burnouts and ****?

Agreed, one wheel would have to look broken for toe to be bad enough to effect alignment.

Idk mane I'm just stating the facts. I have racers a couple times but no burn outs. I mean I spun while racing but that was just a couple times. Note that the belted occured on the inside. The car was riding only on the inside like kills ass looking camber wear. But my wheels were not that cambered. The back started feathering but not bad. And I traveled probably 600 miles in three days too. Back and forth to atl and calhoun which is 80 and 30 miles one way. I'll post a pic in a sec of what my car looks like

I've never heard that, and I can't imagine it working. If you know anyone with an EK though you should try it out.
