    Well I used trigonometry (don’t see how Pythagoras relates to angles) but just interested in the value, mine seemed higher than I expected.

    Guessing you mean a 3-4-5 triangle? That's OK if you know 3 sides (of a RA trianle) and want to find the other but inputs here are an angle and a distance between 2 mounting points, I could be being dumb (no change there) but don't see how Pythagoras can help there.

    I'm using TAN<angle> * <Dist between mounts) = shim thickness

    I took it that he's used it to confirm his datum points to ensure it all square and then use trig for the toe. That's what I did, with the help of some lasers as well 😉

    For me somewhat difficult to explain;
    I know the current values because of the measurements on my car. I known the required set up. Changing the angle of the pivot to the diff or centerline of the chassis (by shimming) I change the angle of my wheel.
    I know how much I have to change this angle so I calculate via TAN the required distance (shims to be added) => simple mathematics.

    I got Covid-bored over the weekend and having taken my wheels off for checking got a bit carried away with scope creep........half of the rear end is off now and I’ll be joining you in tweaking my rear Toe angles shortly! (And changing UJ’s, wheel bearings,)

    Covid induced scope creep? You can probably sue someone over that...

    Good luck
    Not a job I can recommend.
    Left it now for a few weeks to collect courage to mount it again. One side almost finished ( done together with my son). Other side to be done and then new measurements.

    Arghhhhh, struggled for ages to get the nuts off the fulcrum pivot rods...gave up and employed Mr Nut Splitter in the end

    Couple of weeks left in lockdown, should be able to fill that time nicely
