7. The rear suspension gets rid of the stock upper control arms and rear track bar. A pair of triangulated Clayton upper control arms centers the axle under the vehicle and works in conjunction with extended Clayton lower control arms.

An extended rear brake line and lift coils are part of the suspension system but are not shown here.
