I have to agree with SRAD. Can you take a picture from the top looking straight down on the car (top view)

I need to get it back on a set up system, but it was initially set up with 3 degrees of toe in and the tyres wear even, so no problem with camber, the car was probably just sitting weird when I took the pic. I'll take a few more pics tonight as the camera I borrowed has gone flat.

interesting, with that much toe-in i would expect noticable coning on the tires, unless there was very little camber.

not that i have gotten everything perfect on my 960 yet, but so far it seems to want more camber and less toe-in. (like 3 degrees camber to 2 degrees toein) and resulting with 1degree or so of coning on the tires

I'll be borrowing a set up system before next race day and will reduce the toe. I've just always run that much toe, as its a pretty tight track.

I'd recheck you rear track width for the 262mm from the outside of the center of each rear tire. Just lay it on a ruler with mm's..

If that's good, I would start by removing the tires, disconnecting the sway bar, remove the shocks and removing the body mount. This will free up both sides of the rear independently. Lift up each side and see where it "falls", if they fall equally without drag (and downstops are equal) then start reconnecting each of the above one at a time and retest, to determine where the problem is..

Hope it helps good luck

The 5x13mm bearing (big) is #1340 and #1380 if you would like the Ceramic one.
The 5x10mm bearing (small) is #1315.

The spacer (5x7mm) that goes in between those two bearings is #909514.

Hope this helps.

Hi Greg!

You should check the upper pivot ball in the rear upper arm. I had the same problem. It only turns out when you setup the rear end of the car. It's a bit too easy to install the rear upper pivot ball athwart. And since it is the same part left and right it just getting worse because they lean into opposite direction.
Hope this helps for you also.

If you mean the plastic pivot ball nuts, I just ordered some but can't imagine they'd affect the total weight of the car much. If anything, they reduce unsprung weight and hopefully do away with the slop the stock two-piece arrangement has.

Am I wrong or is your rear stabby link at the right side connected to the inner hole compaired to the left side (outer)?
