I'll add: 6. A lean to drivers side on a swing-spring car should be fixed at the front suspension, even if that lean is most easily seen by looking at the rear of the car. Richard Let's see if I can

In your original question you claim to have a sagging drivers side rear. Don't mix that by now saying you've simply got a sagging rear. Those are two very different problems, frequently caused by two

I agree that the front springs will have a dramatic effect on lean to the side (both front and rear), but something else also needs to work correctly for a level chassis - your (front) antisway bar.

Come on Joe - I know you want to sell camber compensators but telling someone who wants simply to replace a sagging spring with a whole new setup is hardly cost effective :-) He's not looking to auto

Barry, Apparently you didn't read the entire message. Higher up (above the recommendation about the CC) I did say that replacing the spring with a new one would solve the problem temporarily. It will

One more thing no one has pointed out - don't discount the dynamic aspects of the rear suspension. Proper toe angles will cause the rear to "pick up" considerably when driving, and turning into a par

I'd like to add to this by saying that you should always unhook your sway bar while trying to fix a leaning car. This way you not only take it out of the equation, but if it instantly solves the prob

Your misunderstanding is in assuming that the angle of the wheel is related to the angle of the suspension upright, that connects between the hub and the spring eye. The suspension upright will chan

That's what I keep forgetting - the trunion allows the upright to tilt independently of the wheel. Too many years with 914 IRS's, I suppose, where the hub and wheel tilt together. Thanks, MDN _______

Nope, ALL springs for the Spitfires (and GT6) are the same distance eye to eye - the longer axles require different radius rod mounting at the body (now that they have different angles for the radius
