New to Chassis Setup

#1 Post by Ryan D » Mon Nov 10, 2014 11:54 am

Hey guys, I have a new car. I took it out for the first time, last Saturday. The car has some suspension issues that I'd like to figure out but I don't really know where to start. My biggest question is how to setup ladder bars because the rear end seems to be crooked. Is there a 'Ladder Bar Setup 101 Guide" anywhere? Any tips on where to go to get good information? I figured I'd ask that question first, before going into great detail about the car.

I'd suggest buying this book and reading up on how to square up the rear end, etc. Dave is one of our members and posts here from time to time.
