so, while tweaking the front end of my 70 duster, im plannig on spacing the LBJ/Steering arm away from the spindle to build in some more negative camber. on another forum, i got into a discussion with a fella named steve about this. hes been around for years andis really knowledgeble (about mopars)

Steve "You're right the spacers should help. The spacers change the Steering Axis Inclination of the spindle. Which changes the scrub radius."

me "can you explain to me what ill see with scrub radius,what ill experience, and if it will be detrimental to tire wear, turning radius, handling, etc? and while your at it, can you make it in laymans terms? i googled it and got baffled pretty quick. this is a new suspension geometry point that im not familiar with. "

im pretty familiar with suspension tweaking, but got lost at this point. can y;all help shed some light on this for me?

I know this isn't a direct answer to your question, but I found this article awhile back on here and saved it.
