Thanks guys!!!

So you made some long arms with the J Joints? i heard really good things about these J Joints, they provide more 30 degree more movement then heim joints. At first i was going to get heims but i decided on the JJ, they are a little more expensive but well worth it.

My friend made some progress on the 4 link... now he just needs the top,finish welding some pieces and to powder coat the arms. I will not be going with coilovers up front like i had planned, i spoke with sonny @ Downsouth Motorsports - King Shocks - Fox Shocks - Bilstein Shocks and we decided on a King 2.5 16" triple bypass, got an awesome deal from him. If you need some shocks make sure to give him a call and tell him cache sent you.


Sorry for the crappy cell pics!

mount looks alot like claytons and my setup. are you going to put something on the front side of it like the frame stiffners from claytons? hell you might be able to get away with just purchasing them. thats what i did. they were cheap.

Yea, i will be bracing the entire uni-body. front and under, my friend will be making them for me i just need to buy the material.

The rear mount design he got from looking at pics from clayton and other 4 links. seems to work the best, the only thing that someone pointed out was in pic 4 the johhny joint is laying on the bracket. At full droop it might hit, so we will check into that.

I already have a flowmaster 40 and 3" coming down from the Y and it drops before the rear axle. I will be getting custom headers made with new downpipe.


Here is a clip from a long time ago. Flowmaster 40 with 3"
