I like that adjuster!  Now is KPI a factor in designing an a arm rear suspension?

That adjustment is very similar to the Edge rear end.

 I honestly am a fan of the setup on the new Can AM X3.  Trailing arm, upper and lower link with toe adjustment. Here is an example of what K-Fab is building for his Mini Raptor

so i use a 3/4" chromoly female heim and a 3/4" chromoly threaded shaft rh and lh on each side so like a small tie rod for easy toe adjustment. standard chromoly heims on the front.

if you were to continue using that style carrier, it would be possible to add a spacer to go to 2 heims top and bottom allowing tow. that tie rod like rod you have for forward support is welded into my lower a arm at a 45* angel forward. imo it does make a diff from personal view. i went with a diff style heim set to make alignment easier.

they do feel more stable and provide a better take off imo. a rear a arm style does make it easy to add a sway bar if so desired too!

That is super nice!!  My single seat car I have now is a arm rear and feels a lot more stable than my old TA car.  It seems as is if is easier to design in the camber and toe gain throughout the movement.  My car now can't adjust the toe but it has about 7* negative camber at full bump.

soooo just to give you an idea.....my chassis (inside of the tube) measurement there is 14.5". i use 24" wheel travel with my cradle welded on at a 5* rake ( up angle) and have plenty of clearance between the upper a arm and frame. i say all this as in your case, with plenty of clearance i would go with a 5* rake as it is helpful. the a arm front end kit pictured in the other post can be ordered  set up for a 5* rake install. you shouldn't have to completely change/re design the upper frame . with trailing arms i bet your at best achieving 14 to 16" wheel travel so 16" to 18" front would be all your going to use anyway so plenty of clearance, as 24" travel doesn't require too much more clearance. again just my opinion of course.
