Pat it looks good. To Hesss'es point, you could diagonal the lower back arm (vs curve). The upper arm on many (Jag, FFR) is a single arm. The FFR uses an angled lower rear arm. The Heim joint hits at the same angle. Also the Lower rear mount is set 3 degrees lower than the front. I am told that both of these add anti-squat. I think that the angle binds the joints under power and tends to add anti-squat and toe-in (a desirable thing). I do not remember how the original was setup (I don't think it had the 3 degree down angle), but will look tonight. I also have a book somewhere that gives some guidance I’ll check this out. I also have seen where people use spherical bearings vs bushings as they may move more than the arms flexing.
