Mine are angled down from the chassis to the rearend mounts(I have adjustable holes on the lower rearend mounts).
I was looking at some other cars and theres are level from the chassis mounts to the rearend mounts.
Is there any advantage in changing the lower arm angles?

do you want to have forward bit?

Yes, forward bite is traction up off the corner.

Raising your angle in your lower links will give you more forward bite more quickly the only disadvantage to this is the car may get loose at towards the end of the straights. If you are having that problem then I would reduce the angle a little.

Is the left side[driver] on the rear end and the right on the frame. if so how would you mount the bar higher on the drivers side or lower?
