the hudy system works on any car brand, you just have to adapt it for your car. for instance the guide says to measure the droop under the front hub and odonnell measures it from the outer hinge pin with the car sitting on bare wheels. so i got my baseline using the od method then just adapted using the hudy tools.

making the blocks from wood, aluminum, etc is a great idea as long as they are the 30mm like mentioned above.

Could also just swing by a starveing machine shop. They'd probally be more than happy to cut a piece of scrap to 30mm and a Droop-staircase gauge.
