Jag rear axel - trailing arm location
Setting up my rear axle on my '31 Ford Coupe. It's a '73 SJ7 . I have the center mount and ride height set. I have the diagonal control arms roughed in and am working on the trailing arms. To run them paralel to the ground I will have to fab 9" brackets that wold drop down from the center crossmember and connect up to the forward ends of the trailing arms. I'm OK with the but I noticed that on the bottom of the S10 T5 there is a large case mounting lug which hangs down to the exact level I need for the arms. Instead of mounting to the frame would there be any reason I could not run the forward ends of the trailing arms to the mounting lug on the transmission?
Attached is a photo of this mounting lug. It is over an inch thick any nearly five inches long.
