I am rebuilding the rear of my coronet and I seen on the landrum site that they want three inches of toe in for there mounting points, another guy tells me to mount them so the pass side is straight and the driver is in one inch on the front and my car had them straight up, and it worked good, but I bent it and need to rebuild. any suggestions?

well, the springs were in there at 44 inches and that is what the rear would be and the front would be 41, that is what landrum recommends, so the tire should clear, thanks for the warning, I overlooked that thought.
What about the pivot front eye mounts, or should I stick with the rubber ones?

I don't know why Landrum says not to use the pivot mounts and Afco says you should (of course Afco does sell it).

Seems like it should be a good think ..... but I would think that it would make the car slightly more flexible (laterally) .... still thinking about that one.

I like running a solid mount on the LR spring front mount (nylon bushed) and a factory rubber bushing on the right .... to promote throttle tightness (and brake looseness for turn-in).
