Title: Racing vehicle four-link configuration method and apparatus

Abstract: The present invention includes a method and computer program for determining possible configurations of a racing vehicle Four-Link assembly. A user of the computer program is prompted for measurements of the Four-Link assembly bracket apertures relative to the garage floor. The measurements are entered into the computer program to produce reference points for the vehicle. The computer program then permits a calculation of lines comprised of the relevant Four-Link assembly bracket apertures and an interpolation of points on each line representing a possible Four-Link configuration. The computer program then renders either a video display and/or a printout of the possible Four-Link configurations and the intersect points of the lines created by the interpolated lines representing Four-Link configurations.
