edit- as far as triangulation in the links, I aim for atleast 30deg of triangulation. So for example, if your lowers are straight and parallel to each other, the uppers need to have 30deg triangulation in relation to the lowers. Or, your lowers can have a 10 deg difference to easch other (10 degrees non-parallel), then your uppers canhave a 20 deg difference to each other (combines for 30 deg).
not talking seperation, but yea 5 to 7 on frame 8 to 10 on axle for seperation.
it's hard to explain.but if you stand at the back and look at the left upper bar and right lower bar.they need to be as close as you can get them to the same distance from the front mounts on the frame to the rear mounts on the your rear 4 link bars will be like 2 box's. this is very important.

from the picture it looks like your upper axle mounts on the truss,could come in closer.
