Buck says if the front end of a car sits too low, it will have difficulty transferring weight to the rear wheels. He suggests raising the ride height just enough to prevent the tires from rubbing the wheelwells. Project Fox sat too low, so it was raised about an inch all around using the adjusters on the coilover assemblies. Using the camber/caster plate, the caster had already been set when the front suspension was originally installed, but Buck verified that it was still at 5 degrees positive by placing an angle gauge on the shock and spindle. Positive caster results in heavier steering, and improves straight-line stability. In a street or road racing application, Buck recommends a maximum of 2 degrees of positive caster.
