    Not sure what questions you need answering, but for what it's worth if you are considering putting a Jag back end under your Fordson, then I would say don't! With the size of tyres you have on, it would be massively narrow, almost to the point of negating the benefits of an irs. A narrowed live rear may be easier to get a hold of and alot easier to mount. Ok it's more unsprung weight, but that's the only downside....imho.

    Ok, so you have massively changed the leverage ratio. Stock Jag springs are way too hard for a small car like a Fordson but that mounting location will have changed that. Unfortunately, I reckon 5" inboard from the wheels on that short an axle will mean they are real close to the diff. Wheel travel of let's say 3" will be about a half inch at the shock. Dampers have to move to damp.

    Have you finished mounting this yet? I assume you were in a rush as you needed to bump it after a whole 23 minutes.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    Thanks for that it concerned me! I just measured the wheel travel to damper movement,it works out to 1" of wheel movement to 1/2 of damper movement,so 2-1 ratio. Is this good? The damper is running at 30 degree to vertical so not that inclined over stock.Im using protech gas coilovers 5/8 boss with single shock on each side and 450lb springs.
