What is involed in "correcting the frontend geometry" on an 64-67 chevelle. Is this all done with the top arms or is some done with the lowers? The car I bought has been changed on both. How do I check the location? The left is tire is slightly ahead of the right. Thanks for the help...

on any frame to correct the front it is a combination of things. the main reason to change the upper mount is to mount it at the same angle as lower so both the upper and lower pivot on the same axis and you do not get caster change this way. also when changing the upper mount you can change the location of the roll center. some manufacturers mount the upper parelel to centerline of chassis, this gives some caster change as the upper and lower do not pivot on the same axis. also other things as far as corrected is balljoints, centerlinks,idler arms, pitman arms things changed to set bump steer to a minimum.

also if the left tire is ahead of the right, that is probably the difference in the caster settings . more is run in the right than left.
