Great! I'll work on this tonight.
Thank you Chip B.

If I'm understanding you, this is roll angle for the car.
What would I do to show potential roll angle for the front and rear independently?

If I'm looking at this right. I would change K_R and K_L to K_F and K_Re
and use the front combined spring rates as K_R
and the rear combined spring rates as K_L

Correct?

Thank you.

Yes, that's an OK approximation, assuming the weight balance is close to 50/50 front/rear (which it is). But just remember that the angle of roll for both front and rear is the same. Your method will give two (slightly) different results, which would be the case only of the car had no chassis stiffness.

I'll try that this evening. The goal is to have the front and rear roll angle as close as possible.

Thank you!!
