The links I'm starting with on my prerunner has heims at the rear, but after I get everything adjusted and tested, I'll probably rebuild them with uniballs for all the reasons stated above. One other reason is the fact that the jam nut comes loose on heims often times, no worries with the uniball.

That's what I do for racing but it sucks if you have to replace the heim in the field.

All the conversation is vaster then the physical reality.
Perry McNeil almost overalls a Mexico race this year in his Sport Trac with the shocks pointing 20* backwards. Totally wrong right? But that doesn’t make him any slower.

It boils down to a couple basis:
Not make your lower arm to long or too short
Don’t mount the shocks too far forward of the center line
Make the upper frame mounts strong

Sheer we all know you can get al little more of this but for the general newbie’s out there, don’t let all this wording scare you from doing your own.

Here is a video of a truck that has a lot of pinion change that everyone will say is wrong but this truck is fast, goes thru big holes and doesn’t fail.
