i'm not hating on the slingshot idea, i think it is quite good but i am wondering why nobody ever adds a second upper arm, g-body style, on their 64's? if all 4 arms were fully boxed wouldn't that eliminate any strength problems? this system has worked fine on all g-body's so why not on Impala's? i believe the hopper, "the next episode" has this dual arm system installed and it hits some good inches.

triangular 4-links works just fine allso, for a high lockup they are great but they get alot more bend and stress on them when pulling 3's. a slingshot/wishbone gets no bend at all.
thats the showngo 64 you're talking about right? i love that car!

the X frames are much narrower in the back than g-body frames thats why 4-links are a little messy to get in place spacewise.
if you do a 4 link that has straight upper arms, like just adding a second banana bar you will have nothing holding the axle sideways.

i am just trying to get an easy system that will allow full use of 14" cylinders for rear lift, the car will not be 3-wheeled. why are g-bodys able to run a dual upper arm system and not have to worry about side to side axle movement? and the upper arms would be curved still, would that make a difference?

the g-bodys 4-links are triangular wich keeps the rearend sideways.

One of the most impressive I have seen is "KING OF THE STREETS" 1963 Impala used 2 factory bars instead of 1

thanks for the props badass. yes the triangulated does work really good without to much bind. we just cant get it to hit back bumper all the time yet. but it raises high lays lows 3 wheels and hops and oh yeah drives down the freeway at 80. so i guess it works well

just measure everything up really carefully, check and double check the measurements, and then check them again!
thats what makes a rearend work smoothly whatever construction you choose to go with...
