    The upper link is unchanged from the original design. It still uses the ¾” Spohn joints and ¾” cross bolts. Since there is only one upper link, I wanted to make it extra strong. The upper link mount on the frame is also unchanged. Both the upper and lower frame mounts have serrations in .100 increments. That’s probably a lot finer than I actually need. I also have some threaded holes in the back wall of the upper mount. Once I figure out where it needs to be for the best anti-squat, I can bolt on some boxing plates. The upper slots will be trying to stretch and open up since they are under tension. The boxing plates should help stop this. That and the upper link mount is 3/8” thick plate in the slots.









    This is the brace that I added to support the upper link mount. I plated the trans tunnel for extra strength and carried the mount over to the frame. The lower part of the mount is also gusseted to the floor pan for extra support.





    According to my 3-link spreadsheet, my stuff is way overbuilt. The safety factor is in the teens for both the upper and lower links.

    My Monza pro stock race car had a 3 link rear------that upper link has a lot of effect on going straight ahead--------lots of nice work/welding
    ted dehaan and 36 sedan like this.
    By popular opinions-just a grumpy old man key board bully--But really, if you are going to ask for help on an internet site, at least answer questions about what you are asking about-----

    Thanks Jerry. That means a lot coming from someone with your experience.
