It was in a new suspension book that I thumbed through after the cam book at Barnes and Noble Sat. afternoon, late.

I can't describe the suspension b/c I really didn't know what I was looking at, that's why I asked here.

I found this today using www.reversephonedirectory.com/ after Larry e-mailed me at home and said to call and ask for Kevin or Jason.

Sounds like a feminine "protection" product!

The book's name is "Street Rodders Chassis and Suspension Handbook", HPBook # 1346, ISBN 1-55788-346-7.

It's got a bunch of interesting stuff in it if you want to look at it or pick one up from Barnes&Noble. pdq67

PS., the cam book is "Hot Rod High Performance Cams". I forgot to get it's ISBN # and think it also is an HPBook. Sorry.
