I decided that I cannot live with what's under my '31 model A right now (quite possibly literally). I've searched and read just about everything out there and I understand what are some "ideal" setups, etc. I did see a few specific references to a 3 link but they were different. Additionally, this is in part based on what is on the car already and I deem usable. So, the idea is to reuse as much of what's already there as possible. Currently (two attached pics but they are hard to see): front hair pins mounted on the frame rails ( these I think http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Front-Hairpin-Radius-Rods-27-Inch-Plain-Steel,3328.html front bracket is Speedway C-shaped bracket welded to frame http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Radius-Rod-Four-Bar-Frame-Mounting-Brackets-1-2-Inch-Hole,3329.html rear brackets on axle are Speedway http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Heavy-Duty-Rear-Axle-Bracket-5-3-4-Inch,6983.html transverse Model A spring Proposed (see attached drawing): use the existing front mounts on the frame rail w/ heim joint for 1/2" bolt (single shear) use only the bottom part of the rear axle brackets w/ heim joint for 1/2" bolt (single shear) Modify 32-34 Ford Radius rods for the lower links by adding threaded bungs for said heim joints Top link using 1" DOM w/ .120 wall and threaded 4-link bushings on the ends. 3 degrees lower and about 5.5" shorter than lower link. Weld in double shear brackets for top link to both a frame crossmember and top of axle. Driveshaft would be 3 degrees higher than the lower link and is about 11" shorter. So, my questions are as follows: Generally speaking, is there any reason I can't do 3-link with a Transverse spring and no panhard bar? I understand there may be a limited amount of sway b/c of the spring/shackles and the fact that I'm not using a dead perch. If yes, are there any issues given my specific angles and lengths? Lastly, is the hardware and mounting sufficient (Heims with single shear 1/2" bolts, modified radius rods, and DOM tubing)?
