I set them up with 1/4 inch of threads showing on each and room for a misalignment bushing above and below the heims so they dont bind up

What kind of suspension is this for...

With ladder bars and 4-links it is a whole lot easier to use a bolt on Diagonal link

I'm trying to picture how your going to do a diagonal link since you have a torque arm and I can't see how its going to work/fit. Even a wishbone would be tough to fit that car with stock suspension. Whats wrong with the panhard rod?

Run the single point side of the wishbone to the housing, the double ended sided to the chassis.

so intead of a front to back wishbone it will be transvere and go right to left.

I may be able to get that to work. ir by running a wishbone from the housing to the rear of the car attatched to the rear section of the frame rails.

the diagonal bar/wishbone runs under the TQ arm. I cant run Rear coil overs with the pan hard bar in the stock location.

Here is a pic of another members car that was nice enough to help me out with the same setup.

Hook the wide part of the wishbone to the rear end brackets then put the slider to the cross member in the center in front of it works great with ladder bars or in your case run them to the lower control arm bolts. We call it a reverse because a lot of guys run the wide part to the front and the slider on the center of the rearend housing

Do you see a difference, or one being better than the other in this case? I just have always ran them wide end to the chassis, and the single end to the rear housing. Just wondering if anyone see's a difference going one way or another.

The heims dont bind up, its easy to jack up. Out of the way with the exhaust running under the front of it to go up and over the rear axle
