all the suspension books i've read
and some experienced racers say
that inorder to not have a radical change
in your suspension geometry throughout
body roll, you need to keep the instant
centers an equal distance apart from
centerline of the vehicle and the best
place in very near the vertical plane of
the opposite balljoint;
HOWEVER in these cases they were referring
to a double a-arm suspension, while
my suspension is macpherson strut style.

so my question is, does the above theory
work for both styles of suspension???,

thanks
