in the upper left corner of your screen you will see the word "menu". Click it. Do a search and get your reading glasses, you will have more information than you can shale a trailing arm at.
Good Luck! Jon

The biggest tip I can give you is to tell you to make sure that nothing is in a bind. Loosen all trailing arm bolts and let all of the suspension work freely. You have to let all of the suspension components do their job in order for the car to handle properly. You do not want it to be sloppy but you need to make sure that the resistance of movement in the trailing arms is minimal as possible. By doing this you allow your springs, shocks, wedge and stagger and tire pressures to do what they are supposed to do. I hope this helps!

I found that if you can get the lower trailing arms running at a slight uphill angle touards the frame it promotes better bite. I had to redrill the mounts on the rear end achive this. I Like 5 deg.
