THIS IS A DUMB QUESTION BUT I'VE BEEN IN SEVERAL ARGUMENTS ABOUT IT W/GUYS SO HERE GOES. WHEN REFERING TO ROLLSTEER ON A 4-LINK GM IT MAKES MORE SENSE TO ME TO HAVE YOUR RIDE HEIGHT IN THE REAR HIGHER TO CREAT A NATURAL 1/4 INCH OR SO OF REAR STEER IN THE CORners,BUT EVERYONE ELSE SAYS TO KEEP THE REAR ARMS AS LEVEL AS POSSIBLE(THE LOWER ONES) ANY OPINIONS? THANKS IN ADVANCE...!!!!

ok my opinions are probably worth less my wife doesnt seem to want them. im wondering how its gonna create rollsteer more so than having arms level id assume the amount of body roll onto rr would decide this like softer rr my thing on the rear up is id think its not gonna help much promoting rear bite anywhere. plse help explain to me we all see things different and im definitely open to learn.

It's easier for me to post a couple of links, than to go into all the pro's & con's of setups. These are some very good informational sites, but are rather long.

I hope these links provide you with a lot of the information you are looking for.

Have a great day

DSMFANATIC, you are very welcome.

I've always found it a better idea to provide people with informational articles, in an effort to let them make up their own minds concerning setups & other issues.

Now if I could only figure out how to mount a "lap-top" computer within reach of the drivers seat, so these articles could be read while coming out of the corners (I can't remember yesterdays topics, anymore...lol).

Have a great day & Safe Racing,
