That looks like a fairly unique set up. I would like to see more pics of the rear suspension also. The lowers look like they are real close to the axle center line so you are putting most of the stress thru the uppers, but your uppers are way above the axle so you might be alright. Are the upper links allot shorter than the lowers? Its hard to tell in the pic. Did you do the math on the geometry or are you winging it? I dont beat off to Pirate much so I am not real sure what other peole have done, but I think I like it. It seems like it would act like a radius arm set up, but with out allot of anti squat. I am sure you have cycled the suspension, but unless your uppers and lowers are real close to the same length, it seems like it would be over constrained in a roll (flexing). Im confuseded.

Then it must be rong.

It looks like the lowers and the uppers are parallel from the top view. IE uppers not straight.

Uppers and lowers are very close in length. I Derek supplied the brackets and gave me a couple numbers and angles to go by. His suspension setups work real well.
