if you clamp them then when the rearend rocks to the rear under acceleration, the rearend will bend the arms because the coilover or eliminator stops the reaction of the rearend thus bending the arms.

WHAT? Can we have a better explanation. Do you mean you are clamping a birdcage on a z-link swing arm RR without taking the rear link off? Or are you putting the elim. on a clamp bracket? I am not following what you are talking about. It's early monday morning.

Im not quite sure what your saying either, I run a standard swingarm on both sides, In the past I have clamped the birdcage on the LR and removed the back link without bending any bars. Im not sure if this is what you mean its just what ive done.
