I am quite uncertain as to why the rear damper is inclined at a angle to the inside of the car. By doing so, does one ensure for rear wheel travel to be along a curved up/down path? i.e I am perplexed as most of the modern rear suspensions are multi-link and have their dampers inclined → This makes it hard to package the rear passengers as they have to be placed closer towards the centre. To visualize my question better, I have attached a catia file that I have drawn. 2. I am quite worried if there is enough 'play' for the rear dampers and that their travel does not intersect with the rear passenger seating position. Please give your views as to the optimal distance between rear damper strut point and seating position.
