    I am getting ready to purchase the RMS Street-Lynx 4 link rear suspension for my 66 barracuda (actually super excited to have something like this available)

    Anyone running this rear suspension on an early abody (62-66) or better yet on a Barracuda

    Did you go Stock location or inboard? Does that inboard free up space for wider tires?

    Any pictures of it installed? Anything else to share?

    thanks

    On my 71 (I know you have an early a) the street lynx alone allowed wider tires because that lower link is narrower then the leaf spring.

    If you put them inboard you’ll have to mini tub it to gain more room.

      Yeah I really do not want to tub the car

      Currently I can get 245s on back - a little larger would be awesome

      How is the ride feel

      putting the springs further in (relocation kit) wont gain you much in a Narrow A, its the inner wheel well that will hit way before the spring rubs. 245 is probably all itll take with stock wheel wells unless someone can come forward with fatter ones, and the way they got them to fit.
