Subject: [Land-speed] Dumb Questions 2011.1 and 2011.2
>I have asked so many dumb question that I have had to resort to a
> numbering system to keep track, lol.
> Here is today's first question:
> 1) I use a Ford nine inch rear end with a 4 link suspension. I currently
> use a diagonal link to keep it located and to prevent twisting of the
> rear axle as it moves up and down. I have that diagonal link located
> between the front of one lower link to the opposite rear of the other
> side lower link. Drum roll...can I put that link between the front
> upper link and back to the rear upper link heim fittings? I would like
> to move it up because evry time I jack up the rear of teh car thelink
> and pinion bearing housing try to occupy the same space and I wind up
> having to disconnect the link at one end.
> And the second question:
> 2) Would a triangular top link arrangement be any better? I would
> fabricate a new link which uses the two top 4 link brackets to atach th
> elink to and build a new single location point for that link up front.
> Heim joints would still be used at the ends. Why would this be better or
> worse that the diagonal link arrangement?
