Thanks!

I'd seen that before early in my research so didn't understand all that was happening. Now it all pretty much falls into place and makes more sense.

Looks like way way too much work for what I want to achieve, but obviously
a great project.

As I'm not concerned with squat and dive - not only won't be driving it to that extreme but probly won't have enuf sheer power to make it happen in any significant way out of mild engine upgrade - I think I'll do the 6 link on the stock C3 suspension. I can make that up myself reasonably easily and at low
cost and I believe it will do the majority of what I'm looking for.

BTW thanks for that tip on posting emails - I never did know that. I've got
very vigorous security apps and blockers but still do get some spam altho haven't had any real incursions in the several years since I educated myself on that and installed the apps. Every little bit helps!

You can still edit your post, maybe it's not too late.

Good morning Gent's :

I have some up dated photos of the Six link bearing housing bracket (No longer a trailing arm). They turned out better than expected. My welder called them "Suspension Jewelry" Thanks again Pier Paolo .......

the top is correct, the bottom is my assembly as I was trying to figure out if all the individual parts were there.
