Does your car pull to either side when driving normally? I'm not sure if it makes a difference but the srt's do have a shorter turning radius. I don't usually notice too much torque steer.

Did you get a fresh alignment recently? Both tires have the same amount of air in them? Motor mounts all in good shape? You're going to have some torque steer mainly due to the unequal length axles, but it shouldn't be undriveable.

The Srt has limiters put in its steering rack. They were worried about tires rubbing at full lock due to the taller tires.

Is your car a 2.0 or 2.4?

Well, equal length axles are out. Getting a quaife or OBX diff will probably help the issue some but wont cure it.

H brace will only help with wheel hop, if it works I'm not sure. The problem is neon axles are different lengths. Do you have an LSD of some sort?
