Just wanted to show you guys what I did to fit my 19x10 Corvette wheels to fit with adequate clearance. This is a recreated trailing arm with the obvious bend and a 1" offset built into the knuckle end of the link.

hope you don't plan on putting any torque through there, it looks like you built a failure point into it.

Oh I see, you're also showing off your MS. I guess you really aren't planning on making any power..

The way that link is stressed is fore/aft like in the second picture. It is made out of heavier wall tubing than the originals as those were very thin surprisingly.
