Kentite Posted April 4, 2018 Report Share Posted April 4, 2018 We have the ability to switch our splindles from side to side. One major advantage to us is that the spindles we run offset the axle 1/4” rearward and by swapping sides we can move the center line 1/4” forward of center. Stock configuration was centered, but we have “upgraded”. We have always had axle issues and are trying to get them as straight as possible. This helps to solve that. So here are the questions. First, is there and advantage or disadvantage to mounting the caliper on the forward side of the rotor rather than the rear? Also since we are moving the axis point from the top of the strut to the contact point of the tire 1/2” forward from its current location will we gain caster? Currently caster isn’t adjustable and the factory spec is 0°. Aside from 3 bolts on and off the only changes we will need to make are rerouting the brake cooling ducts and brake lines. So really not much hastle. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
