I may be wrong but was the YSR set up Mk3/4 Cortina Based? My dad's front end is Rodshop, again Cortina Based so we set it up exactly on Cortina geometry. I have the drawing of the standard Cortina set up on my garage wall. Did have it electronically but cant find it now!!

hi,ysr is based on cortina 3/4/5.camber .50 degree neg.with difference of 1.0 degree side to side.so you can have .50 one side and 1.50 on the other and still be in spec.caster is 3.50 degrees.i always set to 5.0 degrees so when you take a bit of rake into account it ends up around 3.50 degrees.more caster gives you better self centering.yor toe in is about 1/16 inch.your toe out on turns on turn tables is done at 20 mins.
