Guys we have been using rear double A arms for fairly quite some time now and have had success with it. But recently many teams have started using 3 link( multilink) suspension geometry. So my question is how do we obtain the Roll center and the IC's when our toe and camber link are at an angle from top view? Actually we are new to this geometry so any thread or link to this topic would be highly appreciable .
Something of this sort with toe and camber links being angular tilting towards upright from top view.

if your rear double A arms geometry is successful then why to shift for 3 link ??
do not just go after other teams!
it all depends on what you want out of suspension design

I got you, but i never mentioned of improvising it into our design, i just wanted to learn how things worked with this geometry. Because i tried it myself to move the links in ADAMS, but every time my geometry got locked. So i wanted to know the kinematics behind this geometry!

i think any kinematic software could get you through if you are still stuck up then do not be reluctant to make virtual model out of wood or pvc
