    anybody with a rear wide track on '88?

    i know the links are longer to push the wheel outwards but does the strut stay in the same location?
    or is the top of the strut relocated outwards too?
    is there a spacer between the knuckle and the strut?
    how does the swaybay endlinks mount?

    got any detail pics?

    thanks,
    tom...

    TSH;

    Depending on how wide you are pushing your hub out, you will most likely need to move the strut tower top out as well.

    I widened my rear track by 4" each side on my 355 and used a hub to strut extension like Dave shows above and then pushed the strut top out by, I think just under 3" to keep it in more less the same spot for suspension geometry. It as so long ago, I don't quite remember any more.

    The hub to strut extension is about 1.5" if I remember so subtract that from the distance you are pushing the track out and that will give you how far to push the strut top out.

    Cheers
