I was NOT impressed, but I needed to get the car running and had no time to take it back to NPD in Detroit.

EDIT: here is a quick sketch of what I mean. As long as "X" from DATUM C/L to center of the outer bushing is the same and "Y" is the same to the datum (bottom of the lower bolt hole) then it matters not where the lower bushings or the location and shape of the arms are. The arc scribed by the outer bushing relevant to the datum center line, will be the same. The sketch isn't very clear, but I think you'll see what I mean.

Stanglover,

Thanks for the sketch, it does a good job of explaining.

Scott
I'm glad it helped. Bit of a rough sketch, so I'm happy you understood the logic I was trying get across.
Geoff.

I learn something new every day!
