I have read some posts talking about three linc brackets being mounted on the front of the rear end housing,I have also seen a car with them mounted this way ,can some one please explain the reason for doing this ,what advantages would this have over the standard under the housing mounting possition?,The more I think about it the more confused I get.Whith the standard lower mounting possition it seems to me that when the rear end rotates it uses mechanical leverage to drive the lower lincs up into the chassis ,thus creating down force on the rear tires.Whith the lincs in front wouldnt the rotation of the rear end actualy be pulling back and reducing down force on the rear tires ?please help me understand this so I can get some sleep!

I have not tryed the mounts in front of the axle tube, i use Harris or DW style mounts with the mount being below the axle. You have thinking that maybe i might try them sometime ahead of the axle.

the first one to ever do this was Hoover and he sold a lot of cars in texas yes they won a lot of races but like everything else everybody will change eventually

I run a hoover with the mounts infront of the axle, but the car has the extremely long trailing arms on it. The car has a lot of lift to it, but I can't get any rollsteer in the car. I was wondering if anyone runs the fron mounted brackets with the short trailing arms? I wanted to switch over, but I was concerned because I had never seen a mount in front with a short bar.

are you running a lift bar and a pullbar/upperlink with this setup?
