It seems to be a sound design concept. I read the other information in the links that he wrote- good info on understanding a 4-link type suspension and adjustments needed (it was worth looking at the site just for the info to me). Could someone who knows suspension geometry please look at this and tell me what you think?

I'm not saying he's wrong, but I don't think the stock geometry is all that bad. I've been laying out geometry mine and I'm not so sure I would change a thing. I am only considering adjustable uppers to be able to tweak pinion angle. Otherwise I'll just leave it alone. The car hooks pretty good now.
Alex could give you a good lesson on it.

i liked the info on the site. i cant see whare his product does any more than a set of adjustable controll arms. can anyone tell me what the normal pinion angle is on a fox car from the factory. my car works pretty good and i dont have a clue what the angle is. i just have heavier arms with neopreme bushings.
