That's what I was thinking. I have an extra pair of trailing arms from 
the 72 square I scraped a few years ago. May try that along with seeing 
if those bushing are still available. I would assume they are the same 
ones used on a type 1. If i got desperate enough I could try sending it 
to the body shop next door where they have a frame machine and could 
bend the arm but that could open a can of worms as far as weakening the 
structural integrity of the arm. The biggest problems its having in this 
area is has a decant pull to the right just enough to annoy and it's 
wearing the inside of the rear tires a bit too much. Hopefully when we 
get the toe on the rear left set right that will help along with the 
camber on the front left.
