What would happen if i lowered the mount on the left side on the rear end the runs to the trailing arm. not changing the wheelbase but just lowering the mount
Would it help with forward bite or not???

yes, the increased bar angle should promote better forward bite.

iowa, i moved mine down 1.5". my car is a mustang GT. it has a similiar rear suspension as a metric car except the springs are on the lower control arm. it may cause a push, but that can be corrected with other adjustments.

martn, putting more angle in the lower control arm(s) acts as a lifting mechanism. what is actually happening? when you pick up the throttle the rear end tries to rotate. the increased control arm angle gives this rotational force more leverage on the chassis. this forces the tires "into" the racetrack. if you have a wheel-hop problem on a dry slick, this is the fix.

i did that to last year but got caught it throws the whellbase off and when they messure it they can tell **** them anyways

Could i also tilt the spring buckets on the rear end forward on the left side and backward on the right side (looking behind the car) and would that help since i cant move the perches off the top of the rear end they have to be mounted in stock location????
