That's some very good info Billy. I had never considered running the bars at different angles side to side... Your analysis makes perfect sense and it should work just fine...
I wish I had talked to you before I started my Astro van project. I have decided to go with leaf springs and home made Caltracs for my rear suspension just because I couldn't come up with a 4 link design that would work both in a straight line AND a cornering situation...
Here is some more info from Alston's site.
This will give you some good info also and if you look at it from Billy's point of view you should be able to come up with a workable design...
