What's the fix for this I'm sick of pulling the front end apart after every race.
It's possible you could use a new barrel in the CVD. I once had a barrel that wasn't threaded far enough and the grub screw would get tight before it put enough pressure on the pin.

Try Darkseid's method first

Has anyone tried this? Set up all 4 of the rear suspension blocks (U3129 & U3130) just like the front ones. As known, the instructions have you set them up a bit differrent in the rear. The 2 rearmost blocks on the rear side, the ones by the shocks/bumber area, are actually kind of reversed, as apposed to the front side suspension blocks, which have all 4 the same way to creat 0 deg inboard toe. Well i set up the rear the same way, so that the rear also have 0 deg inboard toe. Now all 8 suspension blocks are set up the same way, and looks nicer and more assimetrical. Just add shims to the rearside's rearmost blocks to increase toe...

Advantages...well, it looks better, more assimetrical and even. Second, it's much easier to set up and have an idea of how to set up toe. Also, in the heat of a race, if for some reason you need to remove some shims or add, you dont to get confused and set it up the wrong way and screw your set up and waste time...maybe PW or Adrian can comment on this and see it seems Ok or not...

I think you're going to make the rear of your car way too wide doing it that way. The amount of shims you'll need to put in the back to get the right toe would make the back way too wide.

Not really. What I mean is this: check out how the 4 front suspension blocks are set up, upper and lower. This give you 0 deg inboard toe. Just do the same for the rear and you'll have 0 deg rear toe, just like the front. All you need to do is adjust the rearmost blocks of the rear suspension. Then all 4 rear should be the same as the 4 front ones for 0 deg inboard toe in front and rear. Then add shims to the rearmost rear suspension blocks to get the toe you need. Its really the same thing. I have tried both ways and see do difference in toe. Its not wider at all, but it does give you that even look all around and much easier to set up and harder to get mixed up. The question is why does Schumacher instructions have us set them up as in the instructions--there must be some reason...anyways, you can try this and try and make your observations...seems to work fine and looks even better. That's how it is on Xray T2's also, and it works OK.
