How much wider are waggys than our axles?

Possible to do waggy front and rear and change BS on wheels to keep it manageable width wise?

Ok guys have a question, I'm building my own 4 link rear setup, based on Clayton's....what end links should I use? Rubber joints on both ends, flex joints, heims? What.

School me on joints please. I need a better understanding.

Also....adavis, could you measure your upper 4 link arms from cut to cut on the tubing so u will know how long to cut mine.

alright man.....uppers measure at 27" from the cut to the cut. Then you have the weld in bungs so they are probably about 28'' TOTAL. The lowers are a little harder to measure because the axle end of the arm is round and has a rubber bushing pressed in.......if you measure from the end of the bushing to the cut on the frame side of the arm, the measure in right about 29''.

ill get the pics up here in a sec......sorry for the crappy night shots but itll give ya the idea

I'm using heims on my rear 4 link. They are loud, but I don't mind. They offer the most articulation within the joints.

Ruffstuff inch and a quarter lowers and three quarter inch uppers. Pictures in my build thread if you want.

Yea I'm just making the uppers for now so that'll work. I'm still on stock rear lowers because I haven't designed my brackets for the long arms yet.

Thanks again man, and those are made from 2x2 tubing correct?
