Global West '58 to '64 rear suspension

We upgraded the rear suspension on our drag car tribute '63 project and are quite happy with what we went with. Chose the tubular upper/lower control arms from Global West and the panhard bar relocation bracket. Because our end goal will be to install a 9" we installed the #TBC-97 adjustable upper control arms (9" Ford) with the added 2nd upper on drivers side using trailing arm kit #VTC-95 welded to the stock "P" case rear for now. This is the first build we've done where we have not installed bags so the control arms are #TBC-84 for coil springs. This car is going to sit a little higher than our other builds so chose to also add the #PHC-84BKT to help get this bar as close to parallel. Replaced the passenger side upper frame mount with #VTC-94 to match the new drivers side frame mount since these new brackets have multiple mounting positions for anti-squat options.

Well, it's certainly going to be more stable!

Always nice to see this level of detail.
