They look like an over complicated torsion bar. Check the Korean pages. Import shark gets his low grade stuff from the auto markets over there
It's an entirely different type of brace. A Z-link brace doesn't prevent the wheels from going up and down, but keeps them from moving inward or outward, and from rotating. A torsion brace prevents roll by limiting overall chassis flex and twisting (torsion). Technically, a vehicle could be fitted with both of these, as well as a brace to stiffen the rear axle. It's just not necessary to do that much.Not impressed with the design,
And definitely not impressed with importshark.
Look at the pierce rear torsion. There's a reason why rhys, whiteline, and pierce went with that design.
you said what I was trying to say, but with a lot more technical detail.The "Lateral Rods" are actually a modified Watts linkage. Watts linkages are used to keep the axle of solid axle rear suspensions straight, not unlike a Panhard bar in function. However Watts linkages rely on a different mechanical principal.
The effect this will have on our cars is minimal however. If you look at the way the device attaches it only serves to keep the inner edge of the spring perch traveling in a horizontal path. This by itself would be fantastic, except I'm not really sure that given the attachment point for both the center link and end links would support the stresses.
Your much better off getting Pierces torsion bar (or a similar style), these function by creating a second beam allowing the inner edge of the spring perch to follow a similar movement range as the outer edge (as defined by the axle beam). This does so without introducing the stresses and artificial constraints shaped by the Watts link.
I aim to please... Oh and as a kicker...you said what I was trying to say, but with a lot more technical detail.
