Nothing at all wrong with delrin bushings. For that matter,I'm in favor of their use wherever possible such as inner pivots of the arms.

btw......it is my personal opinion that 35* is prob the max down angle you want to go. that requires a considerable clearencing of the over the cv boot retainer. like carl said the f150 boots are great on the NP 930's. now on that forward radius rod......imo climb half way up the front side lower a arm, weld it to the arm with heim mounted on frame. draw a line from the center of the axle at the cv pivot ,at a 45* angle back to the frame for the mount point. where it welds to the lower a arm, weld a tube from there to the rear leg of that arm.

def want the radius rod forward! heims on all ends for sustainability for sure! always put the pivot through the center and 1/8" narrower but order 6 up ( always want a spare or two) and get it done!!  ;D ;D

That should work.  Yes a little narrower, 1/8" sounds about right.  You will want to use cv boot flanges with over cv type boots to get the angle you desire.  The flanges will require work, to allow cv balls to slip thru.  I did have luck with boot staying on smooth cv, maybe others did.  I use boots from front of the ford f150 think its 02 but same as the stub axles I run on outside of car. 

This should rip!!

You guys,  LMAO LMAO LMAO

Be sure ya leave enough room for the turbo and header in front, cause that will be next step.  Like drugs, little bit is a blast first time, then more more more more!!!!

I've got 7" from the header to the firewall of the chassis for a turbski location.

Yep, the fuel pump has that internal regulator.  No worries, as I will use an external regulator.

So I cut the car in half...  That sucked.  LOL

I did some initial math and a CAD-ish layout.
24" equal length arms, 10" center to center vertically on the chassis and the uprights.  At 40*, this gave me 21" of travel with 5" of ground to chassis with a 30" tire.  I will probably strap it to 20".  Huge improvement from the 15" I had.  Not sure yet if I want to run that added radius arm that goes forward or not.  I increased the width of the inner mounts to 16"  This was set up with 0* camber and 0* toe.

A question regarding non-plunging CV's.  I've heard different measurements.  Seems like the non plunging units are 1/8" to 1/4" narrower than the plunging counterparts?
Hell, I may just order one up to mock things up with.  So far, i'm planning on taking the pivot points of the upper and lower straight through the middle of the CV.

One last question.  Heim joints or bushings at the outer pivot?  Pros and cons? 

OUCH!

Carl sucks lately w buggy stuff.  LOL  Its cold/winter and buggy is packed in trailer.

But the new Bazzaz sys, is e-85 compatible with a newer O2 sensor.  I have my maps setup to e65 I believe with this turbo zx12.  Larger injectors 500cc, stock 330cc. 
Bit of learning curve with turbo e85 maps for me.  Its getting there.

that's your review??  rofl rofl
I'll try harder, cosctruction business is off the chain, and new position doesnt let me sit in office all day. LOL


stop it, you still spending too much time playing with your vette! we get it  LMAO LMAO :nw rofl rofl
The new is bound to wear off sometime.
