I am ordering parts to rebuild the front and rear suspension on my '75 4 speed coupe. I was looking at going with Offset trailing arms to get wider tires in the rear. 

Does anyone have experience using these and how wide a tire were you able to get under the car? If you have pics and actual wheel / tire sizing that would be awesome.

Thanks for reading / replying,

If you get no responses here, you might try checking with the vendor that sells the offset trailing arms and see if they have any answers for you. Don't forget that after you put in the big block engine, you'll need to upgrade the front sway bar to the 1.125 and install a rear sway bar which I believe is about 3/4" diameter. The front springs will also require upgrading to the big block springs.
