I'd like to hear impressions from the driver's seat as well. I am keenly fascinated by Mendeola products.

Hi, it looks a professional piece of kit but I have two queries:
1) The top mount on the shock tower has a long plate and therefore M12 bolt. The node point of the bars is well inboard of the shock tower - doesn't that add a bending moment to the bolt?
2) Where does the torsion tube connection land, it looks further outboard of the frame horns that are the traditional fixing point?

The node point of the bars is well inboard of the shock tower - doesn't that add a bending moment to the bolt?.....there was a lot of questions about that when we first introduced them. We then posted pictures and our findings. It takes more then 6 tons of presure before these bolts or brackets will bend.
2) Where does the torsion tube connection land, it looks further outboard of the frame horns that are the traditional fixing point?.....the front mounting point for IRS is the irs pivot bolt. For swing axle it is a bracket attached to the horn gusset.
