thanks guys, it is independent but i am not sure how much that stock dif may hold. I get a lot different answers but we will see. I will be looking for upgrades soon. still have a few things on my check list.

-suspension
-wheels
-roll cage
-paint / body work
-injectors / fuel rail
-upgrade dif
and crank up the boost.. in no particular order but hoping to see atleast 15psi very soon.

Nice, but yeah, that rear end is going to be a pain the butt to modify, but then again I'm sure they make some custom arms to work with dropping it down and so on. What an odd looking geometric setup though!

the Z31 has the same setup S12 has the same setup 280ZX has the same setup and the 80's datsun 510 has the same setup.

i think this setup was meant more for rally racing then anything else because of the design. see if you look at the arms they pivot in such a way when the shock is fully compressed you would get maximum camber on a dirt road and you would be able to grip some what or say you go over a jump the suspension would be able to compensate and not break something?

i dont know if that remotely makes sense but it does look like it was a old school rally racing set up.

only thing is if he decides to use something like that and starts having to upgrade parts of it to take launching and the abuse that will be handed down it will be more costly than a solid axle ford 9". for example getting some upgraded axles with the velocity joints in them in compariosn to some stright custom width ford 9 axles will be hundreds of dollars in difference making the ford unit more reasonable in regards to money.

but for track use that 9" would be causing problems but then again with this motor I doubt he's going to be taking a lot of hard turns with it... lol.
