Narrowing the rear suspension, idea? have you done it?

Postby icehouse » 07 Aug 2016 13:29

So now that I've been autoXing my 510 a ton I've realized something else I want to fix. Why is it with stock front struts that the rear requires a more positive offset wheel than the front if you want to run less than 3 degrees of camber in the rear. It's so stupid! Right now I have 195 50 15's on 15x7 +25 even with removing the inner step I still have to run 3.3 degrees of camber. I want to get down to like 1 degree, I'd also like to run a 225 45 13 so I need over an inch more tire. I was thinking about moving the arm pivot points inward, this would also get the track length back since when you go past a level arm the wheel base gets shorter. Help me guys!
I liked Hainz better...... Can we trade back?

I ditched the inner lips and moved the rear arms in 3mm each side. 8JJ + 30 rims all around. My car is a lot higher than yours so the camber gain at ride height helps get me clearance to the rear arches.
