Solved the dog bones enigma

The TRD Sportivo kit came with spacers to go between the subframe and chassis.
Toyota listed them as for ´roll centre correction´.
That caused no end of confusion as the springs lowering the car lówer the rollcentres and the spacers ádd to that. I think I ended that now 😎

I already concluded some time ago that they were rollcentre túning but had little to argument that.

Now I have fitted the Spotivo legs and have found that the front is lowered more than the rear,.
Also the rear springs are 65% stiffer wheras the front are 35% stiffer, meaning the dynamic ride hight is more so still.

Ergo the front roll centre is lowered more than the rear.
EUREKA!!!
The proof of the dog bones is in the lowering: They balance the rear roll centre with the front one.

So; for anyone who created some rake: fit the spacers.
