Can someone help me with this questions on bump steer?
In reviewing the near bump steer article they show a diagram that shows one intersection points of upper, lower, and tie rod. (See attached). This looks like a view from the front of the car.
In my suspension the tie rods do not rotate in a plane that is parallel to the control arms. (See attached).
1) it seems that I should cut a plane through the spindle, and control arms to draw this intersection. Then point the tie rod so that it intercepts the crossing point of the upper & lower control arms. Is this right?
2) Right now my tie rods point straight out and are perpendicular to the spindles. Is this best, or is it better for them to be brought closer to being parallel to the cut plane described above.
