Description
The classic version of the suspension geometry calculator. It is simplicity itself and a great place to start learning about suspension geometry. With this calculator you will see how bump and droop can affect camber.

Try the new calculator – http://www.racingaspirations.com/apps/suspension-geometry-calculator
CLick on the pencil icon, then the form icon and you will be able to enter the dimensions direct

I am attempting to utilize your calculator and am puzzled as to where to edit dimensions. Any help is appreciated. I want to do a comparison of a stock 1955 Chevy versus a C4 Corvette (1997) to visually see the difference. Any help will be appreciated. Below are the dimensions I have so far. Stock Tri5 suspension measurements:

Lower a-arm pivot spacing 20.5″
Lower a-arm length 14.75″
Spindle height (balljoint centers) 9.75″
SAI 3.5 degrees
Vertical spacing between upper and lower a-arm shafts, 10.25″ (average at center of shaft)
Upper a-arm length 10.25″
Lower balljoint center to spindle center 2.813″ (vertically)
Wheel mounting surface to lower balljoint center 4.875″(horizontally)
6.70-15 tire rolling radius 13.36″
Stock wheel offset +0.56″

225/60-15 tire rolling radius 12.40″ (BFG)Assumed modified wheel offset +.5″ (7″ width)
255/45-17 tire rolling radius 12.67″ (Kumho)

Early C4 suspension measurements

Lower a-arm pivot spacing 24.125″
Lower a-arm length 13.25″
Spindle height (balljoint centers) 11.875″
SAI 8.744 degrees
Vertical spacing between upper and lower a-arm shafts, 10.84″ (average at center of shaft)
Upper a-arm length 8.25″
Lower balljoint center to spindle center 5.625″ (vertically)
Wheel mounting surface to lower balljoint center 5.25″ (horizontally)
245/45-17 tire rolling radius 12.45″
Stock wheel offset +1.97″ (+50mm)

Late C4 suspension measurements

Lower a-arm pivot spacing 24.125″
Lower a-arm length 15.00″
Spindle height (balljoint centers) 13.375″
SAI 18.00 degrees
Vertical spacing between upper and lower a-arm shafts, 11.59″ (average at center of shaft)
Upper a-arm length 8.00″
Lower balljoint center to spindle center 5.75″ (vertically)
Wheel mounting surface to lower balljoint center 4.00″ (horizontally)
245/45-17 tire rolling radius 12.45″
Stock wheel offset +1.97″ (+50mm)
