Did you get a chance to talk to him? When I was taking bump steer readings I also took suspension angles from various heights. Not sure if the data is any help. I marked the LCA at stock height as where I zeroed my level and could use it as the base reference.


Stock Ridge height
LCA 0
Axle 1.35
TR 6.3

Lowered 1”
LCA 3.8
Axle 6.3
TR 10.15

Lowered 2"
LCA 7.75
Axle 10
TR 13

EDIT: I have what could be Adrian's solid works file if anyone wants to look into it. I currently don't have means to open it.

So I am going to start bothering racer x about this again. Been thinking about the caster adjustment. Originally it was threaded and made a pivot on the front bushing. The problem with this design lead to binding on the rear bushing. So to keep this method the rear bushing needed to be redesigned. At this point, for simplicity, I am thinking a shim method might be better, and most likely to happen faster. Similar to what martin did. I am going to run it by racerx, but I think to avoid any rule conflicts by redesigning the rear mount, as well as the added cost of designing a rear bushing that might work with this, I think shimming might be the most effective, and cost efficient.
