I measured and with a spacer between the strut and plate it could work. koni's have that stupid knob on top of them....it could be made smaller though if needed
What "stupid knob"? The white knob is not permanent, its just a tool to adjust the rebound damping.MicaCeli said:I measured and with a spacer between the strut and plate it could work. koni's have that stupid knob on top of them....it could be made smaller though if needed
I'm talking about the flat adjustment nipple that the white knob goes on. It's tall.mtbmr2 said:What "stupid knob"? The white knob is not permanent, its just a tool to adjust the rebound damping.
(Set up is" GC camber plates, 85-86 R. Koni Yellow, in the front 87+ strut housing w/ machined Aluminum spacer. )
I did not have a problem with the flat blade of the adjuster.MicaCeli said:I'm talking about the flat adjustment nipple that the white knob goes on. It's tall.
I can't see the pic at work anymore but followed your build on them. I might want to do something like that in the future.
I assume you are asking about this statement?MicaCeli said:Steve, what you said about level of the front and rear lower arms still hold true?
If so, the answer is yes.XHead said:So we need to set the control arm angle to optimize roll axis location and camber curve. In reality, its not control arm angle but instead the angle of the line between the inner control arm pivot bolt and the center of the outer ball joint. You can clearly see the front ball joint pivot is well above the centerline of the control arm. Same for the rear but somewhat less offset.
To achieve our previously stated geometry, we want the front virtual control arm (the line between the inner pivot and the ball joint center) to be roughly parallel to the ground. In the rear, the ball joint should be slightly above (maybe ??) the inner pivot.
Yes I understand, the leveling tool awaits my return homeXHead said:I assume you are asking about this statement?
If so, the answer is yes.
And I underscore again the difference in the "virtual control arm" and the physical control arm. The virtual control arm is the line drawn from the inner pivot through the center of the outter ball joint. This line is NOT the same as the physical control arm. The difference is significant.
