    Well you guys saw the before pics, see the updates ( fresh off chassis table)and remember some of our customers are on a budget!

    Also just to get the question out of the way, the reason for trianglezation on the rear bars with the single leaf spring, is for the same reason old man Ford did it back in the day. This spring setup will develope a rock side to side at speed if not for the triangled bars, please look at all old model T & A's original wish bone design.
