      it is a shame looking at all of these that everyone is missing a very simple concept when trying to reproduce this...

      and this was orignially a Bill Scott Racing piece used in the early 80's in SCCA... i simply changed the design to work with a later trailing arm where the beam was no longer located at the pivot.

      Do you mind sharing what you are talking about? Not really following what you are talking about, we're going to keep reinventing the wheel till we know about what was done in the past.

      What an enlightening post.

      Regardless, it was a fun project for me when I was fresh out of school and itching to fab something up. And as a bonus, I enjoy how it makes my car feel on the road, all that matters to me.

      Well I got them on



      But It hits the gas tank Thinking about making new towers that are 2 inches taller.



      How low are your cars? I'm not against raising it more if I have to

      You should have put the rose joints in centre of beam in double shear.

      But, other than that, looks good, apart from tank issue

      Brian,

      Brian,
      Thanks I got the car up like an inch threads from that pic still hits. I think I need like another 2 inches. So I am building taller towers instead
