Ok So i didn't meet my self-imposed timeline but almost.

The 6 link is done !! I'm going out to set the toe to 1/16th in and 0 camber to start with.

Here are a couple of quick snaps....

man, all you guys with your kickass rear suspensions make me jealous! What exactly are the loops around the driveshafts for? Just for safety in case a U-joint goes?

Any good pics of the upper mounts (inner and outer)?

Great work, it looks awesome :thumbsup:

I'm very anxious to see how this works. Mine won't be on the road for a while.
My setup is similar.

Yes I've also made provisions for an inner loop as well.

I'll get some pictures this weekend, Norval wanted to see some detail as well.

Setting the toe with the 6 link is easy and quick. I use the front shims to get it close and then a simple movement of BOTH upper and lower strut rods pushes or pulls the rear of the trailing arm around for light toe adjustments.
Makes life alot easier.
I also use a laser level to project the rear tires onto the front to make sure they are pointing staright ahead. It quickly shows if the rear wheels are not pointing straight ahead.

Quick question for you guys that are doing this. Is this drag vette kit or is this something that you guys are making and installing your self? I like the idea of taking the load off of the yokes and making the suspension work like it should. Nice work guys.
Steve at Drag Vette makes a Kit... However I made this myself with help from TT and Norval
