Damn, right after bracing the track bar it bends. And yeah, that "3 link" will give you problems. How did you get it home?

Ah I wasn't sure if they had sent you another yet. That sucks. And ya I could but if I did that I'd want lockers, and if I spent all that on it, I'd want to just do the 8.8 and be done with it lol. Maybe plans will change... For now I'm ok with my setup. I drive a lot too so mileage is a big concern for me too. Hopefully you get all your stuff fixed up and replaced with as little headache as possible

Can you explain what's wrong with the 3 link? I love my IRO stuff. I've seen lots of people run their front long arm setup with adjustable short arms out back. It's much cheaper than other long arm setups and wheels great from what I've heard...

nothing it is awesome the only negative is you only have the lower control arm on the passenger side and no upper (3 link) but if i had to do it all over i would go iro long arm performs great and is the best prices i wouldnt do radius arms just my opinion..

it's not a 3 link. it is still a radius arm just like tnt or clayton's. a 3 link has 3 arms attaching at both the axle and frame side.

if you hit a rock as hard as you say you did i would be looking very hard at the axle for bends.

It's a lot different from TNT and Clayton's look at how it is set up and my buddy just used iro long arms up front on his Dana 44 he made all custom brackets and no bends luckily just that lower control arm mount and track bar

it may look a bit different, but the functionality is exactly the same. it's a radius arm just like theirs.

most times i've seen a hit like you described the inner knuckle or tube bent. hope you got lucky there.
