I believe that's the rear, 3 link rear would just be crazy.


The CG looks high if that is 34

It is the rear. Didn't really know where to measure for CG, any recommendations?

Ill have to double check all my measurements. By lowering the CG it makes my antiquat # jump way up.

Updated measurements I believe are more accurate...

How do you post the 4 link calculations? This cell pic will have to do for now

Save it, select the cells you want to copy and paste it into paint. Save that file as a JPG and upload it to your host site like Photobucket. I changed a couple things and hosted the pic to my PB account so here you go.

Ahh ok that makes sense.

So I'm new to the whole calculator thing but how does it look? Why does yours have a static antisquat?

You're using the same version I am. No idea why mine is labeled 'static' and yours isn't. Regardless of the label, the number is representing the exact same thing.

The changes I made and why:
1) Bumped up the veritical separation at the frame by lowering the lower frame mount 1". That brought the AS down and moved you from an oversteer to a very slight understeer situation. Much more desirable.

2) Moved the upper frame mount back a bit to give the upper and lower links a closer effective length.

I think that's a good plan to move forward from.

OlllllllO

That all makes sense until your last sentence. My rear 4 link is already complete I just wanted to plot my measurements and see what the values came out as. Dont know if you recall but I used the poly brackets on the frame side so my uppers and lowers are roughly on the same plane therefore the upper mount cant be moved back. Im not 100% sure all the measurements are accurate but fairly close.

Heres how the values will be affected with a 5in stretch.

Yes, I know you're already 4 linked. What I meant was if you plan on making any changes to the mounts or wheelbase in the future you're in good shape as it sits.
