The Roll Angle Analysis Method allows us to predict how each end of the car wants to react to the force created by cornering. If we know what each end wants to do and can alter the suspension components (such as spring rates and roll center locations), then we can design our car to have a balanced setup prior to testing or racing. This is exactly what we shoot for by trial-and-error guessing. This method saves a lot of time and frustration.
