i got my poly bushings today to do the rear (& fields for my rear motors!)...and already had the power balls mounted to a set of semi reinforced trailing arms (stock length) ...

do i have to extend the t arms and upper to use a 14" in there?

..and if so do i extend it forward of the spring mount or aft of the spring mount ...

no, but i wouldnt put very much spring on it tho, and it would be a good idea to use a slipe yoke drive shaft, u will have to cut your frame in the middle,it will have alot of shift to it as well
ps- i have a slip yoke shaft for sale if u are intested

I think you'r supposed cut 10" from the outside on X frames, I learned that the hard way, and 2 driveshafts later :uh:

YOU WONT HAVE TO EXTEND THE TRAILING ARMS TO RUN 14" STROKES.
I RUN 20"S IN THE BACK AND MY T-ARMS ARE STOCK LENGHT.

sont extend the trailing arms, you dont need it, if u do then its going to look really funky when u drop the car

Is that because of your slingshot?
YEAH, YOU COULD SAY THAT...
BUT IF YOU CHOOSE TO EXTEND 'EM DONT FORGET TO MOVE THE
T-ARMS FRAME MOUNT EQUALLY LONG FOWARD AS YOU STRECH EM.

So, to sum it up, in a question...

if you are running the stock rear suspension, you have to extend your trailing arms foreward to use the long strokes.


If you have a slingshot, you can go with bigger strokes and stock trailing arm length.

Correct?
