OK MY 94 LINCOLN TOWNCAR IS NOTCHED IN THE REAR, WHEN WE LOWER IT ALL THE WAY THE REAR BEGINS TO PUSH FOWARD, MAKING THE TIRES HIT THE SIDE WHEEL WELL QUICKER, AND WHEN FULLY DUMPED THE TIRE ISNT IN THE MIDDLE ITS CLOSER TO THE REAR DOOR..... IF I LENGHTN THE TRALING AMRS WILL IT KEEP THE AXLE CENTERED MORE WHEN SLAMMED? , CAN I USE A 4 LINK??? A LADDER AR??? OR CAN I SIMPLE JUST MOVE THE MOUNTS???

What size cylinders have you got in the rear? If you have a tall ass cylinder, towards the end of its extention, yes, it will pull the axle toward the rear doors b/c of the limited amount of travel of the trailing arms.
If this is the case, might have to look at smaller cylinders or smaller wheels...... :dunno:

your axle moves in an arc around the pivot point at the front of the arm.........................

the longer the arm the less tight the arc will be so the less back/front movement there will be.................


try drawing an arc with a compass/paper and see the arc shape with a 1" circle and a 2" circle.................................... :)
