interesting... gotcha.

On a trailing arm solid tortion beam rear end (FWD car)... I don't suppose there is a ton of "toe" flex (most of the flex seems to come with turning, ever see a Rabbit do a 3-wheeled turn LOL!)... The OE rear toe was a full 1/3* (20') of toe-in, which 2/3 of a degree total toe-in just seems like a lot. I wonder if going to 10' (1/6 degree) for a total of 1/3 of a degree toe-in would be a negligable change or in effect a detrimental change
