I have a 3 link with just the standard biscuit bar on top and the 2 lower links go from the rearend to the original mounts in the frame, straight pan hard behind the rear and quite long. Can't go over board on this just looking for a little more. Thinking about shortening the left rear and the pan hard, would like to keep the pan hard behind the rear though. Any thoughts and how long and what kind of angle to shoot for on lr? If I shorten the lr and leave the pan hard long will they work together, what do you think, thanks, tcmod.

If you are shorting just the left trailing arm you will be promoting rear steer. Unless you have a bad throttle push this isn't really needed. Shorting any bars will make the rear end work faster and cause it to be alittle more radical depending on how much you shorting them front orginal lengths.

It's a TRC (looks like an old Pro chassis and the 3 link was put in by Pro before they left ND). It is built on a 78 up Impala. I may leave it and just run it the way it is for another year and start shopping around for a newer chassis. It's either that or take it apart next year and revamp the rear and front. Has camaro spindles and non adjustable uppers that bolt on at original upper mount (need to lighten it up and make it easier to adjust).
