    117harv posted a link to a thread I started years ago looking for "Actual proof (not "urban legend"- "a story I herd"or "my best friend's uncle's step father" stories) Actual physical or photographic evidence of failed 35-36 rear bones... Its worth the read......
    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...ctures-of-failed-35-36-rear-wishbones.663784/ If a torque arm makes you feel better... By all means use them.... But I personally have NEVER seen these fail from a torque application.

    As far as setting this rear suspension up... Try to calculate your final pinion angle,.. Only tack weld the axle tube, After total mock up is done and car is under full sprung weight, Check your pinion angle. If it's off just cut the tack weld, adjust the "PA" and weld it up. IMHO

    Here's the last chassis I built with them,.... 392 Hemi, TH-350, 9" Bonco rear with 3:50 Traction lock.. and a 40' Merc front spring.

    I'm with you, this car has been on the road for 14 years and 27,000 miles, no bracing and they are wider spread in the front than most applications. Though it does run a skinny rear tire. 100_0427.jpg
