Dominant rear LCA

I have been asked threw some PM's about the end links and road clearance and do I have any problem with them hitting the ground. Well not really. But I had to get my car inspected and its way to low by German law 4.33in is the lowest any suspension part can be. So I had to either take the rear swaybar off or do something to fix it this is what I did. Here is a before and after.

Before

After

I have done some testing and the end link is not hitting the subframe neither is the sway bar. I done some pretty hard and high speed turns with it like this and bumpy roads as well. But its only been set up like this for the past two days. Hope this helps some.
And yes that is electrical tape on the bolt did not want to chip the powder coating lol

Looks good. If I ever get me some of Doms' arms this is what I'll do.

Thou's Dom's arms look awesome. Has anyone thought or figured out Why do they have a big curve or bent in them? Look at the old Focuscentral's arms= straight across. Yes I know they used a true coilover Put the coil load into the strut tower. I also understand the height adjustment. Any thoughts on that?

The bend is just there for the height adjustment. It won't affect the suspension geometry at all. Sacrifice ground clearance but that close to the wheel it won't really matter on the street. If you look at Go's the inner pivot, spring and pivot at the trailing arm are all in a straight line so he doesn't have it lower any more than what the springs give. If the bend wasn't there you wouldn't have any room to go lower.
