This is a great overview. Suspension and angle of trajectory are often the most overlooked and/or ill changed aspects of an automobile by DIY'ers. We see it daily with lifted and lowered cars. Keeping the symmetry and balance of the suspension is just as important as a good brake system and a tight steering box. It is amazing what a little tweak in tire height or elevation change will do to the handling characteristics, including braking and traction. Thanks for this link and to the writer/photographer for some good down and dirty basics.
