Alignment and Clearances
#1
Rather than continue to pile on the below alignment thread I will start anew. I did a bit more on my 73 with the SoT coilover system and landed on the following:

Camber: -0.6 driver   -0.5 passenger
Caster  : +4.0 driver  +3.3 passenger
Toe in  : 1/8"

I would like the 3.3 to match the 4.0 but doing so will require shimming. I can adjust the driver side strut rod and bring the 4.0 back to 3.3. Thoughts? How important is it to get the two sides to the same setting?

Second, what is the vertical distance from the top surface of strut rod to the frame on a factory (or modified) car? Mine appears to be 1 1/2" but I did not take a measurement prior to disassembly.

Thanks

On the caster I would suggest having the same or more on passenger side than drivers side to help compensate for crown of the road.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.
