Triangulation in the uppers and lowers as layed out. Again, I'm just doing the numbers, I'm no expert.
9.6 x 2=19.2 deg in the uppers, 8.4 x 2 = 16.8 deg in the lowers. So 36 deg of triangulation.

Erin, I layed mine out like you talked about and my roll steer got worse. On Johns above it's 24 at the frame and 25 at the axle so they're within an inch of "parallel" The roll axis goes from -.9 to -.5 if I bring the lower axle side in to 17 and make it 24 and 24 but the triangulation goes from 36deg down to 33 deg. Bones default was min 30 so they both qualify, I'm not sure what effect it would have with the lowers at 36" separation at the axle vs 34".
