'66' chevelle 10 bolt

I got a question that may be a "stupid"question, but here goes.... I recently acquired a 10 bolt out of a 66 chevelle (that I am going to put into a '52' chevy pickup), but I have never crawled under a chevelle to see how it is hooked up. It looks like the rear end is set up for a 4-link system. It has 2 tabs with bushings coming out of opposite sides of the top of the pumpkin. Is this for a 4-link, or what??? Please be gentle, I am new to working on rods

It's really more of a 4 bar set-up. You have to raise the rear of the top bars to approach a true 4 link set-up. Check out part 5213 and 5214 on http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive/index.html

Not adjustable like a true four link, but improves the location of the intersection point of the bars.
