Re: [DML] Re: Checked my TABs.... AARG!!

The joint at the TAB has to move in all 3 planes.  It cannot be
reduced to a simple pivot.  The business end of the trailing arm 
moves up and down and fore and aft as the rear wheel goes over 
bumps.  The trailling arm also twists as the body of the car moves 
about it's roll center.  If you pin both sides of the TAB you lose
the fore/aft motion and the twist.  This will adversely effect 
handling and tire wear and direct suspension forces into places 
where they should not go.
