Looking at your design, have you considered what rear bearing housing you're going to use? Maybe you can just steal it from another car. I was trolling pics of the S13 rear subframe, and I'm seeing a few similarities in your design. Maybe you can use those hubs since they are readily available and pretty inexpensive.
The S13 units have an extra link on the top and the lower control arm mounts to 2 spots on the crossmember, so it may not work for this application. I love fabricated parts, but I like bolt on parts more. If there is any way to reuse parts from another car to save time, money, and headaches, I'm all for it. I'm excited to see where this goes and hoping I can grab a unit myself at some point.
