Randy is there enough difference between the top and bottom wishbone mounting holes on the hubs to give any effective camber gain in bump on the unequal length rear wishbones? I am no eggspurt in this field but 3/4" offset doesnt look much when comparing them to the Haynes rear uprights considering the inner mounts on the frame run parallel.

I dont know but on things like the fisher fury in the pics below mount the inner top pivot points much further outboard which has the same effect. The Haynes roadster has app 3" difference between the top wishbone length and the bottom, some of the builders on here are sure to chime in with some sound advice on this.

It may help having a play with this suspension calc. . It`s not going to be a problem because you only need to bring the top link bracket inboard on the rear hub. Using the toy below you should be able to calculate this.

Have been trying to replace some of the photobucket (bastards) photos. Hope this will fill-in some of the blanks.
