My upper control arm mounts are curently running parallel to the centerline of the car
with 1 1/4" offset arms. Does this serve the
same purpose as installing the mounts for the
uppers on the same angle as the lowers. I have to change one mount cuz it's bent. Mean while I am going to measure the arcs that the
uppers and lowers travel in to see the amount
of caster gain or loss. What are yall thoughts.

I'm sure that there are severl opinions on this but I installed both of my upper mount at the same angles as the lowers. I tacked by brackts in place and checked camber and caster at ride height and at 3 inches of compression and rebound. When they are the same then the brackets are at the same angle as the lowers. I can't tell you about adding anti dive or not that is something that will get a lot of different opinions.

Exactly how I would do it. The car I have was
obtained in a trade and I have what I have.
I have the RF bracket cut off and the LF is
still on mounted parallel to the centerline.
I will do some measuring today to find out
if the offset arm gives the same effect and
will post what I find. Installing the bracket
parallel to the centerline is easier and might be the trick of the week???
