Front camber degrees as a function of mm shims is not exactly linear. Any thoughts?
Notes: Loaded suspension on a level ground.
What DOT fluid type is recommended?
I’m soliciting feedback on toe-in and how’s measured. Per 308GT4 WSM, page G6, it looks like the toe-in spec is measured between the edges of the...
I'm just catching up on your posts, but why remove spare wheel liner? You can do the rack and suspension work without removing it. I'm actually in...
For that, I would need the static load weight spec for the 328 springs, which is nowhere to be found.
FoH provided these spring measurements from a 1986 328GTS in their shop for new shocks:
Front: 368 mm (almost an in taller than mine)
Yes. Page 44 of the "328 tech specs" document:
For reference for 328GTB until Vin 76625
Front: 0.201 deg/mm (atan(1/285))
Rear: 0.255 deg/mm (atan(1/225))
What's the math? I tried ATAN (1/215) but it doesn't seem right.
Looks like I have plenty of shims to work with. Is there a simple way to estimate mm to deg of camber?
Circulating back... Adding or removing shims to the lower A-arms only changes the camber angle?
Here's some preliminary measurements (in red) vs...
Hi Rob, I'm interested to hear if you had the alignment checked by a mechanic and how it turned out?
An original document scan from a local Ferrari dealer shows the same missing figures on page 28. :(
It looks like the rear spring for the 328 has the longer free length from one parts supplier:
The red numbers are my measurements and...
I'll post the free length once I take them apart. Thanks.
Do you think this spring swap would have distorted the spring compression on the taller spring fitted in the front?
I'm 100% sure of one thing. The springs are swapped. The fronts are in the back, and the back springs ended up in the front. How you say? the...
I'm not 100% sure yet. The rear suspension is the first thing that appears to stand out thus far. I will be doing more checking to confirm and...
Given the same load, and A=B, if the tire height is changed, wouldn't A and B change by the same amount?
Everything is stock. Nothing's been modified. I just got done replacing front/rear OEM suspension rubber bushings and I'm trying to do final...
