I am thinking JJ's on at least one end. Would I benefit to have an adjustable one rather than a weld on one? How about if I had a JJ on one end, and an adjustable bushing on the other?

Would I want the bushing on the frame or axle? I would think axle because it's closer to the source of wear and tear, but maybe I'm wrong...
I would say frame because it will make the ride nicer/less noisy if the johnny joint ever got some slop in it.
straight piped for her pleasure
