Are there differences in the length of the uper and lower A frames? I mean I see some the guys around here tilt the right front WAY far. I just don't have any more adjustment to mine. What gives??

DirtDobber,.......Yes, there are different arms that are sometimes used....Like Nova or Camaro.....But using them requires some modification..........

I think it more likely that they have re-located the upper tower.......

Other options.......offset bushings,offset a-arm shaft, perhaps a little fab work......

So what gives ????? Looks like the rules..........lol........Someone has taken a rather liberal interpretation thereof........lol

Good Luck,

Aoky so I am going to grab my tape measure and go salvaging!!

Yup "a rather liberal interpretation" is the least we can say. One guy here in Tx looks as if the right front wheel is going to lay flat out.

Are the Sports cars shorter than the "grannie" cars? What kind of modification am I looking at?
