A few yr's ago I looked in to that too, I even called the manufactor, & they didn't know. Looking at it look's like it should, & you wouldn't have any issue's w/ the exhaust either, being a D-tech. I went w/ CFM tubular control arm's instead. I do like the radiator support better than the cheesy stock one. I'd say try it thou. Look's simple enough to install & adjust. Making sure you have the turn buckle's or adjustment's going the right way. Maybe add poly bushing for the arm's & drill out all the rivet's on the ball joint's & use nut's/bolt's.

When a rear leaf spring equipped vehicle launches off the line, the torque of the rear axle tries to torque the front leaf spring mount upward and the rear leaf spring mount downward. As this happens, the leaf spring takes on a slight S-shape. This causes wheel hop and loss of traction. Pinion yoke to driveshaft angle will also change under launch and can cause driveline problems. Traction bars eliminate wheel hop and driveline angle problems during launch. Traction bars, or lift bars, are available for coil spring vehicles too. While coil spring lift bars work in a different way than leaf spring traction bars, you still get added traction by moving more vehicle weight onto the rear tires. >>> By moving the front axle 10'' forward & the rear axle 14'' forward. Use a straight axle on the front w/ either leafs or coils, I like leafs better & jack up the car 2' in the front. This sounds like my 1st car= '55 chev straight axle drag car w/ a 301 in it. Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
