Well it's good to be back on the forum, after a crashed comp. Anyways, I need some help on squaring my 2000 Olsen? DirtWheels sent my some literature and I understand how to do the rear but the front axle made no sence to me! For LF to RT they say to measure I beleive 10 inches from the Panhard hole on axle and make a mark and directly above axle is a cross bar they say measure again without the paper here in front of me I'm not 100% sure on the numbers but 6 inches in and line the two marks up. This isn't working. I know the car has the new style front axle so maybe that's why, because the car is def not bent already checked that like they told me. Is there another way to square LF to RT the front axle that makes sence. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Tom
You would think that they would have some sort of indexing reference (I know Bicknell welds a tab)on each of the 2x4's both in the front and the rear..It doesn't make too much sence that they wouldn't because you want to have a quick reference if you get a good wack to one of the tires...Once you get it square i would put some tabs on it for sure.

The way we did it with our car - and you cant go wrong is square EVERYTHING from the back motor plate we made tabs that stuck out just enough so we could measure from them. Any questions, E-Mail me @
