Trying to dial in the suspension on my M12.
It is a very simple suspension in that you can really only adjust toe.
So I thought I would start a thread on how, and what the measurements should be for the beginner (I am so a beginner on alignments and how to).
I suspect this will be a work in progress, so if you see something incorrect, let me know and I will adjust.
I prefer that my computer / excel to do the math/fractions conversions for me, yep I am lazy, so I have the attached spread sheet to do most of the thinking for me.
I am using a toe pates to measure toe, (example http://www.longacreracing.com/produc...Magnets+(pair)), so the exact measurement is not as important as the delta between the two measurements.
For measuring ride height, i fabricated a spring loaded plunder setup out of two pieces of PVC (one that just fits into the other) with a spring, a set screw, and a calibrated measurement scale. Compress the plunger, set it in the appropriate locations (center of the axle on a frame rail) and release the set screw, after it extends, set the set screw. move it out from under the car and read the scale. simple, repeatable.
attached is my spread sheet, with my first draft numbers.
I am assuming that the specs in the manual are a good place to start
updated xls to work with either camber plates or string alignment
