The plugs bolt in the front mounts where the front of the trailing arms go, and they have mounting holes in the back of them for the shorter trailing arms. Trailing arms should be straight up, no more than 1" angle total. I'll try to get some pics posted soon.

Most likely you will need to build them yourself. I know you can buy some for dirtworks cars but dont know about other manufacturers. Not much to it just take your time and do them right. Dont want them coming apart and end up with a loose trailing arm diving into the ground or worse coming through your back.

Sorry, I forgot all about the pics. I'll definitely get them this weekend. You can buy 'em from Dirtworks for $100 apiece or you can make 'em. Mine shorten the arms by 8 inches. Went from 20 3/4" to 12 3/4".

the plugs you're referring to are made from 2 1"x2" square tubes welded together stacked and round tubes welded to the ends of the square tubes. you use 2 of the adjustment holes at the front frame mounts to bolt the plug to......they look kind of like this.

this is a side view.

i know this is a primitive rendition, but you get the idea, right?
