Steering Geometry

Post by Loop »

Brickwerks used to have a great chart for syncro steering geometry, i've spoken to them but they lost it in a server move some time ago.

Does anyone happen to have a copy of it anywhere? Or can anyone help me extrapolate some data to give me a decent set of figures to give to a technician for a 4 wheel alignment.

I can provide relevant vehicle information for this, ride height etc.

it's all in the Bentley Manual, if you become a full member of 80-90 you'll be able to download a pdf copy through members only, you may be able to find other downloads online
I photocopied the data this afternoon to share with my local garage 
Many garages have Autodata and the info is on that

Too useful to not share! Just add a magnetic digital level and you're good to go.

Can someone please add this data to the wiki? Or make this a sticky?
