Torana front end DRB
 
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and going to have a better New Year. Going to get the front alignment checked in new year as quite light at high speed. Thinking of altering camber. What front end settings does everyone use on their torana front end Drb's?

Is this the front end out of a Holden Torana Ian?

Hey Gary
Yes front end pretty sure out of lc torana

Gaz64 12-30-2018 02:49 AM

I'd say a whole combination of things.

What tyres front and rear?

Power steering or not?

What steering rack ratio, or turns lock to lock?

for DRB's -- most likely a LH, X or UC torana front end
Make sure all bushings and ball joints are in good nick
Check for cracks around ball joint of the lower control arm
Check wheel bearings
Then go for a wheel alignment

Yes, I would have though LH/LX before LC.

LC seems a bit narrow to me.

Ian, not sure of specific settings for yours, however you want to increase the caster a bit, not camber, to give it a bit more feel/stability at higher speeds. Too much and you run the risk of making it heavy at low speeds

Thanks for the replies. have been down Gold Coast for couple days. Will check front end when I get time.
