yep but it might get some side to side movement. might as well do a 3 link with a panhard.

you can do a triangulated 4 link and a watts link. It would be the best all around setup.

You do one or the other not both, a Triangulated 4 link doesnt need a watts link or panhard to stop side to side movement, the 4 links do that themselves.

true, maybe a parallel 4 link with watts would be nice.

i was just taking notes on it, i did some drawings on the bar angles. other then that i really like the parallel set up, pretty simple concept. how hard you think it would take to do this. like a build.

Why not just do a panhard bar and a trac bar setup like D has. Would be MUCH less involved and still give you good handling. Will you have a V8 or good HP numbers to justify a 4 link and coilovers?
