I'm afraid I don't understand the question.
Does this swing arm have a Z link on top of the axle running rearward?

Hey Money, You definitely want them on drop down brackets. Mounting them to the housing would limit forward bite as the rear end rotates.

I have talked to Johnny Allen, and if anyone knows swingarm cars, Johnny does. He told me to make sure that the swing arm has atleast two inches of difference in the mounting points (i.e. where ever the swingarm mounts on the frame needs to be atleast 2 inches higer than the mount on the rear end housing.) He told me that if you had less than the 2inches that the car wont go on a dry track.
