Winter has caused me to ponder numerous "what if's" on the rear end set up of
my TR 250. We all know the issues with toe-in gains and the resultant need
for a firm spring and shock set-up. Being a novice in suspension geometry, I
wondering why Triumph, and other manufacturers didn't use a modified front
The unequal length A arm design certainly would eliminate the toe gain and
provide a stable platform for adjustment. A vertical link similar for that in a
Spit or GT 6 would be needed of course, and some redesign of the rear frame
section and parcel shelf. Is there a design issue that prohibited this? Did the
need for on road safety mandate the toe-in gain? Did any modified racers avery
create something like this? Or, and probably likely, am I all wet?
I can't make these types of changes on my car and remain legal but the
thought does interest me.
