Sorry I didnt mean to sound rude
ask away thats what were here for
had a quick look there used to be a thread all about the offset but appears to have disapeared
what i meant was sometimes its quicker to search than to ask as most of the answers are there already
seems this one got taken by the hacker

Dont qoute me on this but I think anti dive was mentioned that is built into the Sierra front geometry and the combination of the offset mushroom and the way the Roadster setup works corrects it all ie kpi/castor angles camber self center etc.
And again no quoting but people have had problems using central holed mushrooms,because of the self center requirement in the IVA.

With the cheaper centred adaptors mine drove fine but wouldn't self centre for the SVA, had to put lots of toe-out on and pump tyres up to get them to pass. Changed them to the offset adapters after with the holes right at the front and all is fine now. Cost more but you've got to have them......

There may be a good reason why this cant be done. AS the offset is approx 7.5mm, why not use std cheap mushrooms and either mod the top arms or just move the top mounting brackets back 7.5mm. This would keep the king pin angle correct and have self centering with improved castor.
