I'll start a thread on the anti-tramp bars when I get round to building them. Currently I'm thinking of taking the same approach as Sylva did on their live axle cars as it is quite neat and tidy, it also requires no chassis mods...
    A good starting point IMHO is https://www.frontlinedevelopments.co...ear-suspension

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    It is very neat and tidy without needing a mount welding to the chassis

    I found these instructions which give more details, and as you can see from the diagram #1 there is no need for additional chassis work to the forward end of the anti tramp bar. I'm thinking that one could simply attach the rear end to the lowering block rather than fabricating a new saddle plate by drilling a hole through the block to take the bolt.
