Default 2013 Switchback Assault pushing into corners

I recently added Woody's Dooly 6" carbides to prevent darting on my 2013 Switchback Assault. Went out to try it this weekend and noticed significant pushing into the corners. The snow was a bit loose, but I generally have never had any issue with pushing. I love the feel of them on straight runs, but looking to prevent the pushing. Any adjustments I can make to the set up to fix or decrease this?

Git rid of the dually carbides. Seriously. Every sled Iíve ever ridden with them, in anything less than a good hard/setup trail, pushed like a dump truck.

When I had 171 studs down the middle I ran Woodys 8' carbides. Turned perfect with no push. I now have 192 studs going all across, triggers and chisels and I have a slight push when the snow is loose. If the snow is firm, a light touch of the brake lever to set the front end and it turns fine. I did try 9" Shaper bars shortly and no push what so ever. But they are aggressive. If I played with the weight transfer and ski pressure I could most likely make it easier. 144" with the 1.3" Cobra track.

Thinking I could turn up the preload on the front springs to see if that helps. Don’t know that I should mess with the springs in the back at all?

dually anything suck. they remove darting in some cases but won't turn. we don't even stock or sell them. worse choice of runners out there. if your trying to remove darting? set your sled up right. shim the ski's if needed. darting is from three things. a toed in sled, to much ski pressure, not enough ski pressure. in the later pushing will also be a effect.
