I want a sanity check. Double a arm front suspension. What will front roll center height do if the frame height is raised?

it will raise your pivot points and therefore raise your roll center.

Not completely sure if that's true. It will raise your pivot points, but it will not necessarily change the respective angles of the control arms, which is what determine the roll center. For example, if your control arms are parallel to one another, your roll center is generally thought of as being at ground level. Raising the chassis height without changing the respective angles of the arms wouldn't change this. The CG height would be raised, but maybe not he roll center.

Anybody else?
