The shock pickup point is closer to the trailing arm on the old ones that used Aldans. Not much difference other than that. Can't be used on a Beck or TR.

I have QA1 adjustables. Light years ahead of the old ones. Greg's Bilsteins are nice, I've heard.

Yes love the Bilsteins .
Much more predictable .Before it was let car settle into turn.Now you can drive all the way thru.
Bought the other torsion arm pretty much the same as old one .the bilsteins shocks are wider on bottom than the Aldins so the mount is wider. And the damn brake hose mount was 3/4 more forward.So snaked the line back and forth to shorten it ,need to redo that.
Setting the toe in was just measuring the old number from both sides it was 1/8 off so I made them the same add and subtract 1/16 ended up 24 11/16.
Drives nice don't know if its right : But feels good.
Greg set the shock hgt. set a little lower and more camber
NICE
