Im looking for a little help on suspension adjustment. I bought a full ORB kit (upper and lower A arms - 1.5 forward, radius rods and sway bars).
I've got the front done and finished the driver rear.
My question is....where do I start in trying to get it all adjusted? I've got it "eyeballed" the best I can.
Also, being that it is all heim adjustable would you run negative camber? 70% of my riding is at the Hatfield and MCcoy trails in WV.

You will need to set the camber after the suspension has settled and at ride height. Load it as you would on the trail and drive it around a few minutes to settle everything in place. Personally I sent mine setup for zero rear camber and ~1.5-2.0 degrees on toe-in. The front ~1.0-1.5 degrees on negative camber. I set the front toe ~0.125"-0.25" toe in as measured on the tires.

I get the reason for camber - going around trails in the woods, but why toe in? what advantage would having the tires pointed at each other have?

So it doesn’t become toe out…

Most automobiles have a slight amount of toe in also. The reason is, the tires grabbing on the road will pull them out. Starting with toe in, they will pull out to zero. Start with zero, and they will pull out and eat your tires quickly.

Sometimes a little toe out is good. Depends on what type riding or racing you do. But you sacrifice straight line stability. And would wear out tires quickly on a street driven car.
