I ran across this from Hotrods to hell. They call this a Centerdrive truckarm kit.

This is the same style they use on NASCAR. I was wondering everyone’s thoughts on these verses a 4 link set up. I am looking to remove my stock stuff I favor or something better. Any pictures you got of your suspension would be great!

If you PM airmentbob, I think he is running this arrangement in his 55 Gasser.

Good system, ran it on several winning short track cars.

Use the longest track bar that will fit or an adjustable Jacob's ladder which will allow the effective track bar length to be adjusted as well as the rear roll center.

Front trailing arm mounts should be positioned so that the trailing arm is on line with the center of the front lower control arm pivot shaft.

The bad for a streeter with this type of suspension: A short track bar will cause changes in rear wheel base as the suspension travels through bump & droop.
