We have a DW-8 short 2-link. The trailing arms are mounted on what they call a gingerbread man bracket, center line & aprox. 2" or so below the rearend housing. What would happen if a guy was to move the trailing arms up in front of the rearend housing? Would there be any advantages to doing something like this? Just curious.

The Pierce 2 link cars were like this. You gain rear steer, but lose thrust. It's a give and take deal. As it is now, I'd leave them on the gingerbread mounts, and get as much angle in that left rear bar as you can to help aid in foreward bite and rear steer
