4 link


Recommended Posts

Here is my thought down the road. I need to no if these will work on or trucks. Is there some one on here that has done a 4 link I mean Pong is close put I want to get away from the leafs in the back. I think and correct me if I am wrong a 4 link would have more flex then the leafs. So I am thinking of the Poison Spyder's Trophy Truss and then I found this write up (http://www.nitemareperformance.150m.com/spring.html). So where do I find the arms to connect the axle to the body and the preches to do this?

no offense, but this is one of those "if you have to ask, it's way over your head" kind of issues.

 

once you move the gas tank, 4-linking an MJ is the same as any other vehicle, except the mounts may need a little more reinforcement because of the thinner uni-body/frame.

Hey no offense I never said I new what I was doing I just thought that it would be nice that’s all and your right it my be over my head but that is way I asked before I sank any money into it. The parts to do it look to be fairly affordable that’s what got my mind to thinking. Then again that’s what normally gets me into trouble.

Do your research and then make your decision. There's plenty of info out there. It's not like I had a Bronco drivetrain sitting at my house and one day I decided to throw it under my 88 somehow. I did a ton of research into it first. Good links (no pun intended):

So after I have read most of Pete's links I have come to take your advice this is to far over my head right now. But hec I have learned an important lesson here. KISS (keep it simply stupid) and go with leafs in the rear but I hope to learn enough to try this later on but for right now I am going to run away but I am saving those links because there is some good reading to get an ideal of the depth it takes to make a 4 link.

There is a lot of work involved in doing this... espescially in doing it right. Plan on spending anywhere from 750up to 2000 just in parts for coilovers and link parts.. you can reduce this by making your own brakets and stuff, but personally the lil bit of money I will save by making my own parts isn't worth the time it would take.... so premade parts is where it will be for me. Keep in mind that you can find some good fab shops in your area who might be willing to do this and the cost might suprise you on how affordable it is to have it done. Personaly I will be ordering my parts from http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/index.html Their prices are competitive, and I like their designs on some of there parts.
