    There are currently 2 people interested, one firm and one undecided. Contact Norbert and give him your address so that he can calculate shipping and give you a ballpark total price.

    Seems this could be moved up 6” so as not to be so low.Any pictures of that ?

    For them to work correctly and not put an unnatural loading on the lower control arm bushings, the pull rod pivot point needs to be in line with the axis of the lower control arm inner pivots.

    So it would look like this when mounted to the frame ?

    Picture updated.

    Many years ago , Jim from Australia thought the rod should be attached more outward bound on the lca ( to increase effectiveness).

    That’s more like it!

    Yes, I agree with Jim’s assessment. Further out would be better. Heck, if you could go out to the ball joint that would be ideal. But then you have to concern yourself with tire clearance during steering.

    I thought I saw a picture of a set that mounted closer to the ball joint. However, I can’t find it via the search engine. If anyone has a picture; please post it here.

    Thanks,

    Hi Bob
    Was there not a template inside the package for cut the elongated holes in the belly pan
    Hope the template goes not in old paper trash
    I think you show the right direction in you picture
    The front bracket from the pull rods used the same holes as the bumper brackets used!
    At the lower A bracket you used the correct position,use the holes what are still there.

    Sorry not a better picture found so fast!
    Will ask for a next template

    Hi Norbert,
    Yes, you did send a template and I did not discard into the trash
    It has been recommended to attach the Steinmetz strut rod as far outbound on the lower control arm as possible. I thought I had seen a picture of an attachment different location than in the picture you found. As I recall ; someone in the States made their own Zugstrebe and posted a picture.
    Thank you for the assistance,
    Bob
