The car I have been sweating over came with offset upper A arms. Is there normally a reason for using one or the other, offset or not I mean?
The other is the rear end. It is a Ford 9in. I have been asking questions about leaf spring set ups. I notice that many of the aftermarket pieces slide on the axle tubes the either clamp on or wele on. The rear end that I have has a good size flange that holds the outer bearing and four bolts the hold the retainer plate for that bearing. There is no sliding anything over this set up. I guess I need to get out more and see what the richer guys are using to enable them to use the slide on parts.
Thanks in advance.

SO the rear end is not a floater. you need a floater for the slide on brackets

yep sounds like a stock axle not a floted axle.
On the control arms. I ssume you mean one of them moves the balljoint furthur from center. I would guess that one should go on the right hand side. It will allow you to get more caster. Generally aournd 1 degree on the LF and 3-4 degrees on the RF. The offset moves the balljoint back furthur which gives the extra caster.

Would that be positive or negative castor?
