    Thanks to all who contributed info, learning about this complex car is like peeling an onion. And working on it brings tears to our eyes too ;)

    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Damn, that's amazing. Will have to try that on my mid-1999 build car, think it is missing some bracing that the later cars got, but still feels really stiff. Until the G-body goes up on the jack again, this representation will have to suffice (not to scale)

    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Thanks LS4me, really good tech info. It's always amazing to take off an old muscle car's stamped A-arm or lower control arm, so much flex. It's amazing Lincoln got away with so much aluminum on this car. My two drivers right now are an LS with a fantastically stiff chassis, and a 10-second...

    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Huh, that's interesting Telco. I wonder if back in the LS' development the passive system was a cost-saving measure, or a lack of ECU power to control it measure, as cars like the early 1990s Mitsu 3000 GT had active rear steering. Apparently the best new versions are both invisible and...

    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Oh sorry, that was the rare, non-sarcastic "Google search" reply? Okay then. [closes missile silos, pulls back to DefCon 3] And Snickers sucks. Always gets peanuts all up in your teeth. I mainline Dunkin Donuts original blend.

    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Thanks 1LoudLS, oddball, and hite337. Cool rendering hite! So, I’ve written technical articles for car mags and OEMs for the last 13 years, like this one. I was planning on including the LS suspension in an upcoming article, but I’m not a suspension expert and it sounds like this suspension...

    LS suspension design: show me/explain why it is great

    Okay so after I pushed my LS hard on an open road race course, and then LS4me commented in my road racing thread about how the LS suspension was designed by an F1 engineer, I'm now curious. Does anyone have a good overall suspension photo, computer generated image, or detailed technical...
