Anyone ever see it, or have tried it?

I was thikning of setting the LR at 14" lower, and 16" upper, and setting the RR at 20" lower and 22" upper.

Think it'll fly? gotta make a new plug for a 20" swing arm, so i thought why not try at the same time.

It seems to me, which i am probaly wrong LOL. Anyway it seems alot of folks run Z-Link and 2 Link on the right rear to get rid of some rear steer and pickup thrust angle on the right rear (coming off / out of the corner). Making the links longer on the right rear should do that, and still allow the birdcage to index. Thats my thinking on it anyway.

I'm not folowing you, our 4-Bar car is pretty much standard. 15 1/2" lower links and 17 1/2" upper links.

We run 1/4" RR behind but all the links are pretty much the same.

with that long rr you will get alot of rearsteer, alot of guys used to run as short as 8 or 9 or 10 rr lowers on late models to control rearsteer sometimes.
i run a 20 inch lower on lr and a 15 upper. i love it, and wont go to a short bar lower.

Whats the "feel" difference, between a short bar and long bar lower LR link?

Any other thoughts on unequal lengths on 4-Bar rear suspensions ?
