Have switched over from a z-link swingarm to a 3 link with left rear on c/o eliminator in front of the axle and the right rear on top of the axle on a jack bolt with an 18" J bar mounted left side chassis and right side of the pinion. What are the pros and cons with this set up. I plan to run a lot of rake in the j bar and have stiffened the right rear spring a bit to keep the car a little flatter in the corners. I can also switch to a shorty bar left side pinion mounted. I sure could use yalls help.

Artie don't forget too soften your pullbar spring around 600 i think the last time we talked you had a 900 on the swingarm you may should have too went to a 1200 with the swingarm.On a three link i always like the spring behind the rearend on the right rear what wrong you don't like the swingarm

The z-link swingarm is OK but it's the middle of the season and I didn't have it figured out yet so I switched to something simple. You know sometimes we kinda try to outsmart ourselves. Why do you like the RR behind the axle??? The car is built to move practically anything anywhere with a clamp bracket on the rear suspension, that's why I am posting here.

Move LR behind and stiffen spring to 250#'s and leave the 900# spring on pullbar
