    Anti-dive, using brake torque on the spindle/upright to create a lifting force on the control arm to counter dive. Trade-off is reduced suspension effectiveness under braking, a factor on rough surfaces. Low cars don't need much.

    I'm hoping at SEMA I can find a wheel sponsor

    back to frame mods



    eyeballing





    kind of sort of where it goes

    I know I drive some nuts with how I do this.... here, let me be first to melt your snowflake, I don't care if you like my way or not

    first is notch the frame - that white line needs to line up with the rear-most bolt on the a-arm


    clean



    weld nuts inside

    weld to piece



    I think the front is too low thus the notching you see next


    lots of cutting that original notch later




    other side - this is pretty close to where it needs to live.... note the angles and diverging bits. I think GM thought through all the points of a corner (and I'm going to check this) so that when the car goes right, the tire moves towards the rear tire (basically using the dirt-track method to help the car go left)... thus these aren't parallel with each other, but rather it does several things to help turn


    anyway, the answer to that question won't happen until next week....

    Kinda like Mom's old answer to the question why? "Because I said so" or the adage " If at first you don't succeed, do it the way your wife told you to do it..." Happy Spouses make Happy Houses "

    I really don't mind the questions . Sometimes people ask questions to learn . I my case it's generally why put a 350 in a S10, why not just buy a syclone ?.To which I offer 1 the money and 2 they just don't sound right . Why did you buy a forth get instead of a fifth gen ? To this this I refer them back to the money . But when asked why not the prettier c3 the answer is the suspension in the 4 is far better, working air and this is not a project car......it's a pleasure car . Now I don't have the patience of Job so if all they want to do is ask me questions all day then yeah , that would get old .

    What did you hear?

    So Bob, I've always meant to ask you this - do the voices in your head sign suggestions?
    I see where the course is going... those who have limitations or disabilities often hone in on their other senses to more than adequately compensate for their loss... watch out for that slope.... it's quite slippery...
