I won't try to explain all the effects of suspension settings, it's already been done very well.

Go to elvo's RC Car Handling website and be prepared to spend some time... lots of GREAT stuff there.

You can grab some automotive engineering books and find the answers. Here is mine:
1, is for changing the position of upper arm (link), by doing so, you can adjust the camber gain when the wheels travel up and down. Normally you may want upper and lower arms are the same length as possible (or the outer and inner joints are vertically aligned with the joints of lower suspension arm), which can make the car more predictable.

2,3 can be used for changing the roll center and tuning the camber gain during tires travel. Normally the inner should be lower than outer (not much) which can give the car more negative camber when tires travel up and less camber loss when the car rolls, and also reduce the roll center.

4, I think you can use it to lower the CG if you equally space all pivot points, and you can also you it to have anti-features like anti-squat and anti-dive.

Those are based on my understanding on the real car and think can be transferable to R/C model All the setup about 1,2,3 are general idea and people can have their own preference,
