    It works better because the driveshaft is offset, obviously, because it no longer goes straight back. What this allows you to do is distribute more torque and power to the rear wheels when your off camber. It also helps keep the tires spinning even with a lot of up and down motion on the suspension and just basically prolongs the life of your driveshaft, u-joints, and other drivetrain components. And needless to say, with an extra swaybar on the back you have much better stability and enhanced off road control.

    He probably got it off one of those uber rare rear steering trucks. :doah:

    Lets see, GM made a Denali back in the 70's, right? :doah: :D
