This may be kinda dumb,but was reading my steve smith book,and it kinda confused me.

Now I havnt scaled my car yet,prolly wont be able to till next week,but I feel like im throttle loose,and I feel okay with my rearend alligment. Now If i put a round in the RF and put a round in LR,adding the LR to keep my ride hights in check some what,wouldnt that take away what I did in the rf,What Im trying to do is add some LR,I think Im close and without scales its easy to get out of the ball park. Im sure I have this backwards if so please explain!!!

Putting turns into one corner adds weight to that corner AND the diagonally opposite corner.

adding turns into rf and lr will add cross and increase bite. which will loosen the car off the gas and tighten the car on the gas.
loose in, tight out

just like they said everything works diagonally. add a turn to the Rf you add weight to that wheel and the LR, add to the LF and you add to the LF and RR.

The best way to adjust wedge without changint ride heights is to put 1 turn in the RF and LR, and take 1 turn off the LF and RR. If you do this your ride height change will be minimal if any at all.
