Aluminum aftermarket, cross tube assembly. Stock spindles and control arms,(trailing). I believe their equal length ? How best to get static positive
caster ? Any way to get "roll caster gain" ?
Thanks , Art.

Trailing link front suspensions were used on the Porsche 356 models, and were modified for racing.

The expert on the subject (in my opinion) is Vic Skirmants, 810 688-2059, skirmants@hughes.net.

Give Vic or Barb a call; I'm sure they can help.
