Welcome to the list Bob!!!
I can answer #1 - Yes, this is the correct list for the oft maligned (by me
usually <g>) RB Spitfidget.
#4 - All these cars usually take a list to the left. General consensus has been
that it may be due to the unibody construction. If so inclined, you may want to
try swapping the front and rear springs, but I fear the problem will still
exist. I personally have found a different way to address this issue on my
Bugeye, I am switching it to right hand drive.
As for #3 and #4, we have a few other RB owners on the list, I just suspect they
are out enjoying the day off. Perhaps drinking beer, listening to Frank Zappa,
whilst discussing the proper caliber of gun to use when shooting cats.
Then again, I really don't know.
and the family cars......
