Thanks for the pictures. I see what you mean about the bend.  I guess that is due to the raising of the cross member?

Thank you for posting the pictures. I already purchased most of the steal that I need for the rear chassis work. I started to modify the frame rails and move the rear cross member.  Otherwise I may have considered your kit. 

What does the extreme kit do to resolve the trailing arm? Do they extend it or make new mounts?  I circled the part I am referring to in the picture.

Thanks,
Mike

ok ... ask me any questions ... you have to make a tunnel of suspension to 26cm away backward.

Mr2 Suspension Trailing arm question? Lengthen or move Brackets?
« Reply #1 on: December 29, 2015, 10:49:12 AM »
I am not the most experienced when it come to suspension geometry.  I am currently working on my chassis and trying to decide if I should build longer trailing arms and attach them to the current oem body mount locations. Or to move the brackets rearward to retain the factory length trailing arms.  It would obviously be much easier to assemble some adjustable trailing arms but they would end up being 10.375" longer than stock. I am not sure if that would impact handling in a negative way? Comments appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike
