Default Torque arm pivot link adjustment

I notice that some torque arms have and adjustable pivot link in addition to the adjuster near were it bolts to the rear end. Is the adjustable pivot link needed to dial in pinon angle?

So I can't adjust pinion angle with the spohn torque arm because it doesn't have an adjustable pivot link where it bolts to the cross member? A torque arm needs to have dual adjustment on it (front and rear) in order to dial in pinion angle?

I'm not familiar with the Spohn torque arm, so I can't help you, if that's what you have. I had a Random Technology torque arm, and it, like most others, had the "adjuster link", at the rear of the arm.

The purpose of the adjustable pivot link is to help with pinion angle in conjunction with the adjuster. Depending on ride height you may not be able to get enough adjustment with this the adjuster itself.

It also helps set instant center however with a torque arm that is a hole other discussion.

Thanks for explaining. The more adjustment, the better!
