    I think he's using a heim, not because you can't get enough articulation out of the poly bushings, but because the wishbone itself limits sides. Having the heim will give you just that little bit more, for better sides. I could be wrong, though. I know my Mazda gets crappy sides in the back, and it's either because of the wishbone or the rear lift bars.

    Thanks Jimmy....I drove it a couple of hours to a show today. The pinion angle is off a bit,Shocks are too soft. Once these adjustments are made should be good. I think.(based on my limited knowledge.)

    Looks pretty good 04xt.

    The shocks being too soft is due to them being mounted at an inefficient angle. Better than a bandaid (stiffer shocks) I recommend measuring the travel of your rearend (amount of lift) and picking out a shock which has about an inch more travel and mount it to the rearend and the notch vertically. If you can't find one that is long enough it can be mounted at an angle to account for the shorter length. However, keep this angle under 30* for the shock to be reasonably efficient IMHO.

    I like it.


    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than the sweetness of that cheap price!

    that setup looks great! should last a very long time.
    shocks arent that effective at that angle thats probably why is feels soft
