I did the correction also on the trailing arm a total of 8 bushings. The Trailing arm corrects bump steer.

2 eccentric bushing with spherical bearing internals for Camber arm (Roll Center correction)
2 eccentric bushing with spherical bearing internals for trailing arm (bump steer correction)

Per side of the car.

In the front,

Only the lower control arm affects roll center? The Tie rods are for bumpsteer, and the thrust arms are for caster.

Is that correct?

So for the front roll center correction what did you do to the LCA? I heard mention that the SPL arm will correct but I donít see how.

** Edit: Nevermind I see now it appears to have the same shim arrangement that their tie rod ends have. So using these you can space the attachment point downwards. Iím guessing you would use the same shim amount you used on the tie rod end?

I missed the September 5th laguna track day. Could get a nanny in time, had to stay home and help with the baby. The next laguna track day available is Nov 27th. That's is too far away so planning to be at Buttonwillow Oct 9-10. I'll update soon. With new born here my time is scarce.

Got the car aligned and with the bushings in it aligned properly.
Clearly after bushing install the alignment in the rear was way off spec.

With the amount your spending on parts, pretty sure you can afford a room for the night. 😀

I guess I'll see some of you at Laguna Seca 11/28. Will be in my M3 or Supra, depending on how the car is after getting beat up at Buttonwillow 11/26
