Can anyone give me the correct mounting location for the upper control arm mounts on a metric chassis?? By the way this is for a pavement car but I don't think it makes a difference.
Thanks, Dave

Call lefthander chassis. They are the only guys I know that do pavement. Yes it does matter if you want to be fast.

i run a 8.5" upper on the right and a 10" upper on the left. i am using nova lowers with 6117 ball joints, and 6136 in the uppers. right side is mounted about 1" above frame rail on the front, and 2.5-3" on the rear (0-1 degree anti dive). the mounts are on a 10 degree angle to the centerline of the chassis (about 1/2 of the angle of the lowers).
left side is the same, except mounted 1/2" higher than the right.
roll center is in the 4" range, close to center. at 5.5-6" ride height. right has about 2 degrees camber gain per inch of travel.
