I've been working on building a HPDE/auto-x car for a number of years now and I would like some opinions on what to do for the rear suspension.
The car is a 1985 notch with a 302, 5 speed, and 3.27 geared 8.8
Front suspension is as follows
stock '87 k-member
Motorsports aluminum/delrin bushings in fox length arms
CCM Ground Pounder CC plates
Front coil overs-CCM Ground Pounder road race kit(400lbs)
Jamex front struts
MM spherical rack bushings
1/4" milled off of the back of the rack mounts
UPR bumpsteer kit
Rear suspension as it sits now.
Unfortunately I ordered some of these parts without any research so now I am redoing this setup.
Mathis anti-squat LCA mounts
BBK lowering springs (250 lbs)
Stock '87 sway bar
KYB gas a just shocks
MAC upper/lower control arms w poly bushings
New stock rubber bushings on the upper axle side
The car also has:
4 wheel discs
10 point roll cage
2 point k-member brace
MM strut tower brace
I expect around 275-300 hp at the rear wheels.
My question is do I build the TA out of the Mathis book or fab up a 3 link?
I will also be making my own PHB.
Buying one is not a possibility.
I am a fairly good fabricator/welder and am a toolmaker/machinist by trade. I currently work in a fab shop so I have access to all the necessary tools to make just about anything.

Please feel free to comment on any other aspect of the build that may need addressing and thanks for the help!
