I intend to drive it on the street mostly so i'd have to say mainly handling..but with dragrace skills so to say.

The Herb Adams suspension book has some good info on this. It is for sale at the SAE web page. http://www.sae.org/
Also look here http://www.cachassisworks.com/
Alston has been doing them for street cars.
Link placement is critical and these systems tend to bind up without proper link placement.

I've heard Mark Steilow is doing one on his latest Camaro project. I think I read where either Car Craft or Popular Hot rodding is carrying a series of stories on it.
I haven't found the articles yet.

Cool

Jonas, here's a link to a site where you can purchase the bible on chassis tuning and design! I've seen the video that's a suppliment to the book and WOW I was impressed! This should be what you need to all the info that you will need to make a decision on what type of suspension to go with!

Hello 67 Prostreet!

do yo have the jegster 4 link kit ?
I need to know the lenght of the tubes o========o
and the height of the frame brackets, before i order a kit myself...sadly enough jegs.com does not offer technical service over email and it's a bit difficult for me to explain (swedish) what i need verbaly... so if some one here has bought/used this 4link kit i would be very happy to recive some details... the reason why i am so intrested in the jegster kit is because it seems to be quite compact and a bit smaller than others (Ex. Competition Engineering)

Thanks
/ Jonas www.soulcollector.nu
