It depends on the agenda you have for the car, generally, for all but very smooth surfaces, there is insufficient travel before the shock bottoms out, ideally the travel needs to be increased by using longer shocks and springs, to do that, the top mounts need to be re engineered, turrets in the wheel wheel arches or fabricating new top mountings into the roll cage, or a combination of the two is preferable to trying to use the stock chassis mountings with a network of brace bars. The off road boys have led the way, and the blue Japanese racer follows a similar rout to my own set up with re positioned over slung lower mountings and the upper mountings off the roll cage rear triangle, here is where steel a arms offer more versatility than alloy Porsche ones, being easier to modify.
