    CORTINA Mk3 IFS AGAIN !

    Hi all
    When i fit a 'x' member is it mounted level with the chassis rails (they are level front to rear kick up). my main concern is caster angle, I presume this is taken care of by 'A' arm position and uprights, probably a daft question but i'd sooner be safe now rather than later.

    cheers guys JOHN R

    The clip sits level , the bolt that mounts the top arm is set at an angle of about 3 degrees, from memory. If you measure the distance up from the bottom arm bolt hole to the top arm bolt hole at front & rear of the clip, you'll find that the dimension at the front is slightly bigger.
    No longer selling anything Hot Rod related. Not on this site anyway. Don't bother searching Ebay either, they got too greedy.........

    Plus of course the chassis needs to be set at the finished ride position when you instal it ,if you put it in with the chassis level and then jack the rear you'll lose your caster.

    You can also fine tune the caster by setting it on the lower tie bars.
