I'm gonna start with a basic question for you guys to see if it meshes with what I'm thinking. I understand that in a mcpherson strut arrangement antis are generally determined by tilting the lower a arm and that the upper strut mount is essentially considered the virtual upper a arm based perpendicular off the strut. That said, what if you don't have a lower a-arm, but instead have a single lateral lower control arm bar with an intersecting radius rod. This is a picture of the mr2 rear suspension? http://www.mr2turbo.info/pics/800x600/dcp_2099.jpg In this picture the foreground is the vehicle front and the background is rear. Since this is the rear suspension, I would assume that an increase in anti-squat would come via spacing the ball joint down or moving the front of the radius rod up. Is this correct?
