Anyone ever switch upper front control arms on a Monte? Left to right and right to left. Does this help dial in caster?

I've never changed them around but I can up most promise you that you wont get nothin out of swapping them around. My own opinon is that you'll just we wasting your time.

And your basis for this is what?

There's guys around here that used to swap them, before the rules said you couldn't.

Really I think the only thing you gain by doing it is a bunch of caster on both sides. Or at least on a Metric chassis.

my buddy runs on asphault. he runs left side upper control arms on both sides. He said it helped a lot with dialing in the caster. But then again on dirt I don't know how much caster you run.
