    Triangulated 4bars

    I am going to build some triangulated 4 bars as I have to lose the panhard rod on my Volvo rear on my rover. What do you guys use as bushings? I don't want to use urethane bushes because of the twisting action. I'd like rubber Metalastic type but have memories of the old ford void bushes. Any thoughts?

    On my '56 Chevy I used VW Beetle 1303 model inner track control arm bushes. they are quite big but not so large as to look out of place. Cheap too.

    As you say triangulated 4bars develop twist in the upper arms,
    another way is use urethanes one end and rod ends in the other to allow for the twist and bind.
