(just an example---->)And 2.5 on the right and 2.5 on the left is not 5 degrees. It's just 2.5 degrees.
NOT!

Example:

With the 3 degree Toe Block installed, measure EACH side of the Car with a Hudy/Integy Set-up gauge. EACH side will measure 1.5 degrees, for a TOTAL of 3 degrees. The 2 deg block would give you 1 deg per side.

I don't order direct from Jet Racing. Their price quote is bit higher than other store.

I just checked using my Set-up gauges...with the 2.5 pivot blocks installed...it reads 2.5 toe-in each side...

jet vs square camber links? the jet parts looks just like the original stock part with 4 screws holding it down...the square part it's only held secure with 2 screws...in an event of a major front end collision...the square version may get bent. and maybe not... my 2 yens...

Erik..

I just used your interactive set-up sheet on the updated Adobe 6.0 pdf reader...part of the text gets chopped off...their are up/down arrows that pop up in certain cells to move the text up/down.... but for the most part it works fine.

Pops must run a Losi. Cause thats how they measure it. They measure total toe in by adding the two side together.

I'm in the automotive industry, I know what I'm talking about. According to you all of the alignment shops in the world are wrong....
