Default Solid mounted diff LCA support

Hi,
In UK.
I have a solid mounted diff and jag xjs suspension In board discs.
As I have gone turbo I need to support the LCA more.
Due to the design of the chassis, LCA bolt goes through chassis in a tube support, I can't get a rose joint etc inline with the LCA pivot to go to the LCA original radius mount.
My only option ? Is to do a watts link forward and aft of the LCA arm radius bush mount or top of the hub design.
Do both of these allow the movement up and down of the IRS?
Regards
Gav

Make brackets on the bottom of the lower control arm and the top of the hub carrier. Use these to control movement.

Hi,
Thanks for response
Is that inline with the diff inner LCA? If not as from the picture does it bind through travel?

This uses a lower trailing arm, but a second torque damper could be used there too.

hi there is absolutely no bind. But the way it is set up is if the vehicle tips say to the right the right side wheel will tow in and the left side rear wheel will tow slightly out or stay straight.
