If you want to avoid any binding at all in a street application, a Tri-Angulated 4 Link is the only way to go. Pro Street cars with parallel 4 link or ladder bar suspensions tend to hop around a corner because there is no give in the roll of the car when cornering. I found this out with my Studebaker Resto-Rod and scraped the Ladder Bars in favor of a Tri-Angulated 4 Link with Air Ride. Project pics at http://www.angelfire.cim/super/1950bulletnose
