I have a 3link car. The lower trailing arms both angle down some. A driver with the same kind of car told me that the trailing arms should angle up around 5 degrees. To put some rear steer in the car. And also help forward bite. Is this correct?

yes. put some angle up to the frame in them. This will help with forward bite. We are playing around with ours right now to see what effect raising or lowereing 1 at a time has on our car regarding roll steer. We ran them both all the way up the other night and the driver liked the way the car cam around the corner(rear steer) but I think it loosened the car up too much... so still playing. In a few weeks i will know more.

What angle are they when all the way up? Mine are 10 degrees, I plan on trying it Friday.
