Same quirks as the ford coil setup, except the solid mounting will make it worse! Even with the heims on the frame mount end this will do nothing for the housing tube twisting stress!

I don't get it. I looked and went about a 1 1/2 pages into it and I don't understand his thinking at all.
Nice work though if that counts

He said that one side was rasied 60" on a fork lift.. Which I'm sure is because the u bolts were simply twisting on the axle housing.

In theroy, with the u bolts backed off a half a turn, it should still flex good. But I would have just done 4 link with the buggy springs..

Not sure I get it either... Loose u-bolts??? That would eventually cut right through the houseing.

make that 3... or 30 by some of the responses in the thread.
Admittedly, I only skimmed through about 1/2 of it though.
