sounds like we're talking about the same thing.

I am putting the svt springs back on tomorrow and will be watching the angle of the lca's. I will report when done.
thanks. If you take a pic of each side like I did, then it helps to rest the camera on something flat (like a 2x4 or the floor) to assure that the viewing height/angle is identical for both LCA's.

So far, so good. But...the repair was less than a hundred miles ago, so I've been babying it (esp. in corners) due to some of the concerns I posted here. Truth is on a vehicle this old, there is so much slop in the existing hardware, and then throw in new springs + LCA's + swaybar endlinks + Eagle GT's, I'm not sure I'd be able to tell the difference between generic swaybar rubber and the presumably more responsive Moog rubber.
