bottom bar angle ?

does the angle of the bottom bar affect anything other than bag placment?
At ride height my bottom bars are at about 30* Im running a 2 link so the axle is solid mounted to the bar ends . here are some pics at ride height.

Re: bottom bar angle ?

What do you mean angle? Do you mean left to right, as in the triangulation or do you mean front to back as in the mount on the frame in relation to the mount on the axle?

If you meant the first one, the lower bars should be parallel to each other with no triangulation.

If you meant the second one, the bar should be parallel to the ground at ride height and the angle will change through the range of motion. This change will cause the rear pinion angle to change through the range of motion as well since its a solid mount at the axle.

Re: bottom bar angle ?

I have my lowers parallel to each other. My uppers have the triangulation.

At ride height my bars are angled up by a few degrees to help increase my anti-squat. (the bushing on the back of the bar-at the rear- is closer to the ground than the bushing at the front of the bar).

Re: bottom bar angle ?

Hes talking about the angle relative the ground, and I already responded on C10F but Ill say it here as well since this forum is much more active.

In a typical link setup youll want the lower bars parallel to the ground, this will decrease the amount of rollsteer the truck will see. Rollsteer is when the rear axle changes its angle relative to the frame, and will actually steer the back end of the vehicle. This is helpful for some track cars but can be very dangerous for a truck on the highway. A small dip in the highway can send you into the next lane, and I can speak from experience on some trucks that Ive fixed, it is a real shitty feeling. It gets worse with SUVs since they are top heavy.
