For those of us who are not engineers but have some "shade tree mechanic"
ability, there is a very good book tht explains the basics of suspension
geometry and how modifying the various components affect the car's handling:
"Performance Handling: How to Make Your Car Handle - Techniques for the
1990's" by Don Alexander.
It's published by Motorbooks International, P.O. Box 2, 729 Prospect
Avenue, Osceola, WI 54020. The ISBN is 0-87938-418-2. The book also
covers suspension alignment settings, corner weights, and tire pressures.
Best $17.95 I ever spent.
