The roll centre is a virtual point at which the chassis interacts with the centre of gravity to create weight transfer and roll. Here we explore solutions for maximising grip as well as common pitfalls when fitting coilovers or lowering your Macpherson strut car.
A must for VAG Group chassis, Whiteline roll centre and bump steer correction kits are designed to correct roll-centre geometry using specially engineered ball-joints and tie rod ends. Raising the front roll-centre results in a substantial increase to front roll resistance and a significant reduction in suspension compression of the outside front wheel during cornering. The result is more even weight distribution and improved tyre contact ultimately improving front end grip and cornering speeds.
Attention S550 Mustang drivers!! Whiteline is proud to introduce another way to ‘Activate More Grip’ with adjustable, heavy-duty Rear Toe Arms (KTA228). These new, easy-to-install control arms feature Whiteline’s uniquely engineered synthetic elastomer bushings. These allow adjustment of the rear toe to optimise geometry of your cars’ rear end especially after lowering.
The job of the suspension system is to maximise grip from tyres while maintaining acceptable ride quality for passengers. Our philosophy revolves ...
