    Hi all
    Has anyone had experience putting together a rollover jig.The pivot point is 1.04 mtrs high, made up of 40mm box section which conveniently sits inside the rear rails. At the front I,m going to utilize spare bumper supports. How far below from the pivot point should each be mounted.

    I don't need all the dimensions for the jig I've already built it,, just far below the pivot point the arms supporting the car should be, I already have it up however the front is twisting vertically so that the feet are partially off the floor one end this tends makes it rock end to end and walk apart so I'm thinking one end must be higher than the other even though the door aperture is level or maybe the bumper bars aren't level. :banana:/>
    Thanks anyway
    Bert

    Mine walks a bit as well, the pivots on the upstands are 4 foot, and the drop downs are 6.5 ins front and 5 ins rear. Finn.

    Yeah the difference between one and the other might be the key apart from being top heavy as it is now :chug:/>/>
    Cheers
