    When Craig was running that set-up he was tearing out the sheet metal upper mounts. I know Dan welded it up at the track a few times. Now Craig will tell you that this set-up does not bind at all but the owner of Maximum Motorsports has a different idea. There was a paper MM wrote telling the binding results they saw when testing different Mustang four link bushings. Of course both of you are/were very fast running that set-up.

    I inspect mine very regularly (every day on track) and have no cracking/tearing up top.

    I don't remember if Craig ran a panhard bar but I would have thought the whole rear would move too much side to side with sphericals and no bar. Shows what I know.
