I've seen many different types of radius rods used in t bucket solid rear suspension set-ups... cut front end radius rods mounted on the rear axles, ladder bar type, original rear radius rods, etc. I have a really good set, not rusted, of 1936 Ford radius rods that I'm using for my track-t. They are strong because I've tried to bend them to see how much flex there is and I can't see any flex. Of course they have been shortened a bit. My question is how strong, how much power should they be able to handle by themselves. I've seen the other radius rods mounted usually in front of the rearend on a vertical mount. The 36 Ford radius rods mounts underneath, horizontally, sort of around the axle tube. Has anyone used these and had problems with this type of setup? I do plan to add another thick walled tube which will mount on top of the rearend, beside the yoke and run the same length as the radius rods, mounting at the same distance. This should relieve some of the twisting stress.
