    not much difference. i prefer the boxed. harder to bend a square tube than a round tube.

    adjustable trailing arms help to make the rear end straight with the car. it's called thrust angle. this will cause the car to 'dog leg' to the side the rear is pointed. in the illustration below, the thrust angle is to the right of center. so, when driving straight, the rear of the car will be towards the right side when viewing from the rear. adjustable trailing arms can fix this. even from the factory, the rears are not perfectly straight. my 00 formula is off by .15*, or basically 1/8". in the grand scheme of things, nothing bad will result from this.
