Tatum Trailing Arm Setup


Well-Known Member

I know a few of you have Tatum's and I was hoping to get your help. I managed to rip the brackets holding my trailing arms off of the cross-member. Since both sides are bent, I am unable to determine their orginal angle. Now I am in the process of rebuilding these brackets and wanted to see if anyone has replaced these before or if they have modified their set-up to affect chamber or tow??? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

mount the outer 1st, & fit the inner brkts by shortening them a little @ a time til you achieve 1/8"-1/4" tow in. measure from center using a 30" straight edge centered on the cv, against the rotor.. now you need 1.5* camber, in @ the top.
