He showed me a piece that clamps to the A Arm cross bar (See pic 1).
This widget is movable (by loosing he clamp) and puts the down link about vertical to the direction of load (in the fore & aft direction). The U tab would only be used (as I see it) when the position on the lever arm puts the shaft verticle to it (within a degree or 2).

So, as the down link is moved along the lever arm, the attach point at the A arm can be moved with it to prevent this bind. It also keeps the down link in compression/tension rather than shear caused by the angularity.

Nothing to bind on when moving in & out. The cross peice angles in towards the centerline of the car, but the ball end can handle that. Angularity (in & out) still could be a problem, but it is cut in half. The angle is worst when the bar is set softest....less load.

I didn't get a price for em' . Prolly will stop my heart for a beat or 2. The price for adjustability, I guess.
