I've been playing around on the Racing Asperations web site and made a model of my suspension. The tires are not quite right so the ground clearance is high but otherwise it is close. See:

Here is a link to the original JZR suspension the way I bought it. Pull straight down on the chassis and see how the track width changes. The tie rods would then cause bad bump steer.

Here is a way to to fix it by raising the upper ball joint by 1" or so. This makes the a-arms parallel. This is better than the original but not as good as the first example.

I did another test run in a parking lot where I could cut some circles. The car handled great. I could not get out of 1st gear so the engine overheated soon and I stopped. I'll get a video linked up soon.
