I am going to run a 4 bar z link next season. I am going to float the springs behind on LR and in front on RR. I wanted to use coilover kits instead of having separate mounts for a coilover eliminator and shock. I run on a tight, flat, dryslick sometimes rough track. Is there an advantage to not running C/O kits? The Zlink will not be a swing arm, but a straight trailing arm instead.

On the LR yes there is an advantage. You can run a slider with the spring behind and the shock in front both on the birdcage. It allows the shock to work more effectively thourgh Lr travel.

If you run on a track that gets rough I would be afaid of the sliders the can seperate and your springs fly out on the race track . had it happen on our Harris car.
Also with the springs mounted on the
birdcages if you move a bar it can really change things . moved one bar one hole [same harris car] went from really fast to the driver couln't even touch the gas or it would blow the tires off the car.
