looks good

but one thing bothers me (and its not your fault) the Mini-T front end has some terrible camber link angles on it, it always used to bug me to death when I had mine.

I ended up mounting the inner camber link on the front 'face' of the camber mount holes and making it much much lower.

ideally the outer camber link would be closer to the wheel and much higher

on this picture
http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o...E/DSC_0404.jpg

imagine the inner front camber link was turned 90 degree's so that the ball bit faced forwards in the same direction as the outer one. its mounted into the same 'ears' that its mounted in now, but the front face

Could you not drill into the top of the caster block closer to the wheel?

you would have to grind off some of the caster block to get clearance.

but I think you might have issues with the camber links clearing the shocks as the ball would be mounted further 'back'
