I think the toe arms need to be longer, I would imagine less bump steer in the rear would be good.

we will see its two times stock lenth over new subaru and stock focus.

I am thinking the same thing but might be running in to the body because the arm is higher up
The bump steer is toe in its not near as crucal if you get tow out you spin instantly. easy fix
down the road im happy to see a frame that fits and has a final mounting point that will work.

The problem is the toe link is shorter than the lower control arm.

Um ya?? i dont get what your getting at? many many many cars run a shorter link on toe in the
front there is something it helps on a shit box road car. The affect of this, say guys running
08+ subarus is about 2 times less of that toe in on comp and droop. My concern of 4 more
inches is so little it can be done but unessiary at the moment. Like I said the reasoning is to
keep it in line with the mount on the knuckle, it needs to be higher in the car and if its longer it
will mean I have to cut out and channel part of the suport rail of the car gotta compremise for
now.

Hope that makes sence my garbage run on sentences and shit grammer I have a hard time
getting accross what I mean or people mistake what I say as if im not in understanding.

Could you mount it on the bottom of the knuckle to gain more room? I'm not sure toe in is a bad thing tho ..it sure helped the old 510s.

The geometry may work out fine. You've got enough of it built there you can move it through the travel and take measurements and see what it does. You need to rig up the upper mount (ie: strut top) to get a proper reading though.

Ya totaly so i jigged the top mounts to be identical to the front and see if i can get the strut in there with out cutting up the struture part. We will see it will be intresting to see how much toe
in it dose.
