On my GRT, howfar inward can you set the spring on the rear end and not affect the rate of the spring? Does this promote forward bite and rear steer like it does on a Dirt Works?

anytime you move the spring inboard you affect the wheel rate. the farther inboard you move the spring, the "softer" it becomes. you would need a stiffer spring moved inboard to achieve the same wheel rate as a softer spring moved outboard. i don't think it has any effect on forward bite or roll steer. moving the springs inboard should promote body roll though, which could induce roll steer. just my opinion.....
