After pulling the power pac

After pulling the power pac on a LM , do you need to put something between the trailing arms to keep the arms from bending out ? I have to roll the car out of the garage.

Just to show there are many ways to the top of the mountain. This is my latest solution. A 40 inch long 2X4 notched at both ends and a 8 inch long section of 1 1/2 inch by 3 inch tubing and a 10 inch long chunk of 3/8 all thread.

Need to have the lower control arms and brackets installed the tubing has to be bolted solid to the center of the 2X4. A couple of photos will help explain.

Well thanks to all for the great ideas. I thought I would add to the mix.

Notched the ends of two shorter 2x4s slide them into the trailing arm pockets and lag bolted them together for a snug fit.

Then use two 8in pieces of angle iron and threaded rod to firmly connect the trailing links so I don’t have to remove them.

Ratchet strap the combo together to keep everyone under tension. The motor mounting bracket came in handy for this one.

Feel free to use.

If you search LM suspension drivetrain bracket (in the last year) you should find an installed image.
