    What's your rear camber setting? Rear toe in?

    Thanks, Dennis. You know, you could buy a set and sell your widened ones to defray the expense. Just trying to be of help.

    This is the install thread:

    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...all-guide.html

    I did not have to remove the brake caliper or rotor. If you remove the lower shock mounting bolt (or upper either one) the lower control arm will drop far enough to remove the rear trailing arm mounting bolt. Thats if your bolt is facing away from the rotor. (nut toward rotor) I didn't change the trailing arm bushings, my factory ones are fine. (car has 13,000 miles) Make sure you have a grinder and a torque wrench. Good luck.

    I must've read that wrong. Thought the camber was different between specs and aggressive alignment, but they're the same.

    Toe in is 0.20 deg for spec and 1/8" for aggressive. Not sure how these compare.



    Still trying to understand the circumstances for rubbing and not rubbing on that trailing arm. Alignment (so far) doesn't seem to explain it..

    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    You said 1/8" Toe in = +0.12 deg right? The spec says 0.20 degrees + OR - 0.20 degrees so ZERO would
    be what you want. Right? The reason you want toe-in is so when you are in motion, whatever play/slop
    in the suspension will bring the toe to zero. Older car, worn parts, high mileage=more toe in. Thats why
    the +-0.20 spec. If 1/8" is +0.12 deg then you are right in the middle. Is that right?

    Thats not right...1/4" wouldn't = 0.24 deg..would it? We awalys measured toe in inches not degrees.

    The FAQ says, "[1/8" Toe in = +0.12 deg]." I just copied it directly from the FAQ.

    You're absolutely right about the need to set a toe in in order to accommodate suspension compliance while the vehicle is in motion. And, though I haven't physically done an alignment in nearly fifty years myself, I do recall the units of measure for toe in was in inches not degrees. Things change, and I am in no way an expert in this stuff.

    Well, where are we then? Why do some rub and some don't? As long as mine doesn't, I'm good.

    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    Forum research has led me to believe that the cars come from the factory with less clearance on the passenger trailing arm then the driver trailing arm. With the small amount of clearance we are working with, I think it comes down to bushings and minute tolerances. Some are just lucky to have that extra few mm that make the difference between rubbing and not rubbing.

    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    I think it all comes down to alignment. Wheeldude had to cut it so close on the backspace to fit a 10 inch wheel
    and whatever alignment specs were on the doner car he got his measurements from, who knows. I don't know
    if an alignment would have cured my rubbing issues cuz I installed the MAP arms first, then got an alignment.
    My car had never had an alignment, only the quickie one at the factory so I really don't know what the
    settings were when it was rubbing. My bushings and ball joints have very low miles so I doubt its from
    worn parts. When you gona install your arms Kid? This weekend? Where you live, I'll come help you........

    Makes you wonder how scientific that process was. Definitely want a doner car that's been aligned, I'd think, and one that's not been modified back there. Then, you'd apply some safety margin to encompass production variations. They seemed to have cut it close all right.

    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    Oh man it would be sick to meet another V owner in Boston, I live in Brighton. The MAP arms and TIC bushings are going to make a big difference.

    The T-Arms are this weekend.

    Also have headers, motor mounts, short shifter, and mighty mouse spacers to put in. Should be a busy fall!
