What's the use of Roll Center Adjusters
It's main function is to help "LOWERED" cars to let the lower arm (FR) or drive shaft (FF) back down to it's reference flat line.
This is especially apparent on front wheel drive cars. When one is lowered too much, the drive shaft will start to point upwards. This will damage the drive shaft very quickly in very short time.
Example of original height with original drive shaft angle: -
Now the new reduce height without proper counter solutions forces the drive shaft upwards: -
When the pointing device is up, it does not have strength to push it down, hence going to bumpy roads the car tends to Understeer allot as it is unable to reach and grip the road.
Currently my RCA is forcing the lower arm downwards. It is also wrong and will need to be corrected.
