I haven't noticed any dramatic reduction in the feedback with EPS,just a LOT easier steering.

i definitely have a reduction in feedback with my eps. along with easier to steer. i am pretty sure david colson's rail felt a reduction in feed back and i knwo scott smiths did!

78 crew....per our phone converstaion, here is the FB link to nick mailloux and the trailing arms he builds. he builds them for woods buggies and look stout. i'll see if i can't snag a pic or two to post so everyone that runs TA's can look them over and help you decide. he makes stock stub axle style and micro stub style. micro stub allows for a longer axle  which = more travel but also requires purchasing more parts for the swap. the pics are standard 3x3 and 3x5 with micro stubs. he makes them any config. his # is  260 706 1769 posted on his home page.

i have always like the shape of the upper nose where it welds to the suspension cradle. i know it's not everyone's cup of tea for but the way the upper frame is bent in then back straight leaves a very nice pocket to mount a shock.

here is a way to approximate wheel base. from the inside edge of the rear lower a arm tab to the center of the bottom spindle is 12".

For comparison.....






As you can see it will be significantly wider.  It looks like if I attach the cradle to the front horizontal bar that runs across the lower side bars, the wheels will move forward about 2 inches from where they are with the beam.  I am thinking of lengthening the two tubes on the back of the cradle to give me a little bit more length.  That seems easier than moving the existing bar forward.
