Anyone got any trick ways to put the 4 link mounts on my 9".

By the rules no adj, holes.
both sides need to be same distance below the axle tube.

Wondering if I should lead the rr or lr at static setting?

What kind of pinion angle should I set if for?

cars a full size chevelle not a metric

thanks in advance.

Ive got a tape measure and can put my own mounts on then re straighten my own rearend.

I was hoping someone would have tried and be willing to share if they lead or trail their rr.

Ive decided Ill do my mounts straight up and adjust the lead or trail with the trailing arm holes and washers..

17j, have you seen any jigs different then the ones Ive seen??? simply a rear frame section with trail arms on it, and two saddles you set the rearend in. then center it and set pinion angle and weld on the mounts.
Also do you know ANYONE who does rearends for large gm cars like mine?

I prefer soft bushings in the left lower so on the gas it leads and off it trails.
