I have a 99 Harris and I was told the swing arm setup didn't work . I am running 2link with brake floaters and would like to switch but not sure if it will work.Let me know if I should try this or stay with what I have.
Thanks

My '96 harris had swing arms, with the buiscit bar and then changed to a spring bar. The '01 that I have, has the 3 link with a spring bar and brake floaters. The swing arm car was less sensitive to changes and was harder to adjust at the track. I do like the 3 link better (Stay with the long panhard bar behind the rearend!) To answer your question, Yes swing arms will work. Are they better? Depends on the track and how you drive. I think that the 3 link with the springs in front, with the rotation of the rearend under load, "it lifts the back of the car" I think it creates more forword bite. (others may have differet opinions, all are welcome)
my 2 cents on a Harris car.
