Update
Working on the 4 link Brackets , was handy having a few inches of the axle to test fit parts .
So here are the parts for the Axle

IMG_3248_zpsxbx2mukc.jpg

Here are the long brackets that are going to go under the frame rails , and again making 4 parts at a time to make them the same so everything lines up . I also made a pattern out of sheet metal to scribe the lines to see better for plasma cutting.

This is were the long one will go

IMG_3251_zpsyxok8esj.jpg

So I have to plasma off the old leaf spring perches and clean up the rails , then tack the new parts on and measure up for the bars .

Before I weld everything out , I have to figure out the Watts link , and go with pivot mounted to the diff cover or on the frame , my tire clearance is to close to just go with a Panhard rod .

And because a Watt's link is way cooler...   ^_^


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

here is a vid of it moving at this site ( http://datsunminitru...920_page21.html) , it stayed on center , a little hard to balance with no shocks hooked up, this was the first run , I just set it static at the bottom of the travel ( full extension ) and it tracked in the center all the way to the top , I put the laser on it also and ran it up and down . Sweetness if I do say so myself !!

The video doesn't work for me.

I look at this and think how can that work with the pivot arm connected to the rear axle being 2 different lengths from its attachment point, it seems like the axle would either move sideways one way or the other a little, or it would bind.

What kind of mind can make this work, it has to be twisted, in my head I see 2 different arcs, the top longer arm I see when moved up and down a foot a slight smiley face/ flatter arc/curve, but the short arm when moved up and down that same foot, I see a big smile/more curved arc, now being the bottom half of that pivot arm is shorter, it would seem to me that the upper half of the pivot arm(longer half) would want to move a lot more than the upper arm will let it move.

 

It seems to me that the long arm should have the short side of the pivot arm, at least that is what I see in my head.
