Just got a grt today with a swing arm zlink rear.. had a dw6 with a 3link..wanted to get in touch with some of you all to help steer me in the right direction..any help for a starting point would be greatly appretiated..2 things real quick
1. on a grt z link do I need to put a bracket on the back side for any adjustment? It only has 1 hole....
and 2. In the big box of stuff with the car was a memory recall tach (autometer procomp) with the recall button clipped off.. any one know which wire is what?? there is red,black, brown, green, and white.
Thank You in advance,
Curt Clegg

add some adjustment to the rearward bars so youcan go like level to 15 on the right and 5-20 on downhill onthe left.
both of those are downhill to back of car.

The problem with those GRT's that don't have that rear adjustment is that you have to make your changes on the front arms. To this, you have to disconnect the shocks, take an accurate ride height measurement, make your bar change, reset ride height, and rehook shocks. It's time consuming and easy to mess up your cross. If you have adjustments on the rear bar, you just make the change and check your lead.

For your tach issue, check out this link: http://hp.autometer.com/instruction_download/tachometers.html

I've got a GRT (#283) that used to be zlink/zlink, and I never added any brackets at the back, but it wouldn't be a bad idea.

Nothing against GRT, but I could never get my zlink/zlink to work for me on a slick track. I could drive in harder than anyone else, but didn't ever have much from the middle on out. Went to a 4bar/zlink and the car suits me well.
