Default Geometry setup in scotland ?

Who can recommend someone in Scotland to do a full geometry setup and give advice on parts to use

Questions are regarding alk,trailing arm , lateral arms , wheel size , bushes

All for a car optimised for fast road and some track use ,

More specifically , is it a good idea to remove anti lift / dive with an alk or keep it and use a top mount to increase caster .

What benefits is there to fitting an uprated trailing arm

Is there any need to use adjustable lateral arms or are camber bolts enough

What is the optimal wheel size , profile size , width , offset and wheel diameter and offset , is scrub radius effected noticeably negatively enough for it to be a consideration when choosing offset . What is the optimal sidewall size and overall wheel size, this may depend on specific tyre choice

Struts will be either koni inserts or kyb agx or excel g depending on if the extra cost is worth it, car is a my00 classic sti

Sway Bar sizes in relation to chosen springs and dampers

Bushes which ones are better being poly and which better as group n

Would of thought RA would be a good starting point, they have a fair few track cars sat outside their premises daily. if your Fife way they are on your doorstep! They have more than a few SLS cars on their books so they are clearly doing something right. Automek are a great bunch of lads but they are more Glasgow way, their car won SLS so again they are doing something right.
