Sorry am little confused, you mean as Roll over steer with the antisquat vs the squat that Ford puts in (angle downhill from the axle)? I have been running with my LCA anywhere from 3.5 to 6 degrees uphill from the axle for quite a while now. I liked the setup and I managed to do well against the competition. But I passed my car to my instructor recently and we almost spun out in the first lap (Chevy guy), started me thinking that maybe I have to much roll over steer. So I went form nearly 6 to 3.5 degrees.My guess is that Ford inclined the LCAs the way they did for axle roll-steer reasons. When the LCAs incline uphill (going from the axle to the chassis) the axle starts steering the rear of the car wide in a corner as the car approaches a set. Norm
Sort of. When you go after big antisquat numbers by inclining the LCAs uphill from the axle, the axle steer goes from mildly understeerish to some amount of oversteerish. The steeper you make the uphill LCA angles, the more oversteerish the axle roll steer effect gets.Sorry am little confused, you mean as Roll over steer with the antisquat vs the squat that Ford puts in (angle downhill from the axle)?
Sorry for the vague question. My 12' GT is lowered with k. springs and supporting hardware. I binned the factory lca mount for the white line adjustable mount with 3 set of holes in which to mount the lca. The lca is a boxed non adjustable bmr unit. Currently I have the lca mounted in the middle hole of the lca mount. This creates a slight downward angle pointing to the front of the car. The lca are the same length as the oem ones. I'm trying to maximize traction and handling predictability. I desire to use my shocks and adjustable sway bars to fine tune the balance of the car.↑↑↑ reads a lot differently from the emailed notice of reply to topic. What are you trying to fix? Measurements to the LCA attachment bolt centerlines would clear up the matter of inclination, and from there a better estimate of axle roll steer as a number could be made.
Are your LCAs OE? If not, do you know if they still converge slightly with the axle ends closer together than the chassis ends?
