I have recently purchased a near bare 2001 rayburn. I thought I had the rear suspension figured out until I noticed that there were no mounts for either the 90/10 shock or the torque link/pullbar. I have however noticed that there are two mounts in the rear just iin front of the fuel cell. Does the torque arm and 90/10 mount in reverse or are these mounts for something else? I am also having one heck of a time trying to run my steering as well. Any help is appreciated. Thanks to all.
Sincerely, Shane T. Ruth

the 90/10s9which will actually be 10/90s on a rayburn mount on the mounts right in front of the fuel cell and rayburn doesnt run a 5th coil he runs a pullbar which should mount right in fron t of the rearend there should be three mounts for the pullbar one to the left ont near the middle of the car and one in between them

Thanks for the help, but there are no mounts forward of the rearend. Someone mentioned that there may be some kind of a pullbar mount that clamps wherever you want it. Has anyoneelse heard of such a thing? Again thanks for the reply. I'm hoping to get some help from you guys who have run or are running Rayburns because my current work schedule does not permit me to call during tech hours to Rayburn's shop.

we cut the mounts for the pullbar that rayburn had on our car off anyway, and put us two mounts on it so you can move the front of the pullbar up and down or left to right.

This is a late model right? Why do any of you want to use a pull bar? If you are cutting and welding mounts anyway why not get rid of the pull bar mounts and install a torque arm. You will get much more forward bite and suspension action, especially on a dry slick track, than you would with a pull bar. If you have mounts forward of the rear end use them for your axle damper shocks, not for a pull bar. Just my opinion...TC
