I am confused about roll steer. Sometimes I see where they run with th right side moved ahead and sometimes they let body roll pull the left side ahead and move the right side back to make the car want to turn left. This is with a GM 4 link rear suspension. What is or are the advantages or disadvantages of these. Thanks

If you are limited to the stock configuration, there really isn't much you can do to alter the roll steer of the rear end. You can lead one side or the other by altering the mounts or using offet bushings, but the actual steer characteristics as the body rolls won't change too much.

If you need a little help getting a grip on a dry slick track, then maybe it would help to lead the right side by a little, no more than 1/4" ahead of the left. Personally, I would keep it straight.
