Setting control arm length


Recommended Posts

I have installed RE 4.5" coils with 2" spacers. I have RESF adjustable UCAs and LCAs and I need to know where to set my lengths at. I used the numbers posted in another thread (LCA=17.25, UCA=15.5) and I have 10-11 degs of castor and pinion is approx 0 degs. Are these numbers just a basic guide? Do I have to just keep adjusting until I get the angles I need?

Mine was not driveable (very far, anyway) with similar numbers when I lifted mine. Got 1/3 of the way home from Pat's house and had to stop and drop the front DS before it self destructed. I reset caster to about 6 degrees and it's been fine since.

 

But that was with an AX5, front DS is about 4" shorter than an AX15 or AW4 rig. I might be able to get another degree or two of caster when I get the 4.0/AX15 in place.
