The rear Mendeola built suspension with custom two inch wider and two inch longer trailing arms. This moves engine/transmission weight forward to help weight balance and transfer, and allows the use of stock offset Porsche 18 X 12 inch wheels.

Trailing arm without hub and sway bar.

Rear shot with wheel in place shows the reason for the offset.

Side view without wheel.
