    I agree with slow... triangulated will give you better performance also... as long as it's a full-forward, not a reverse.

    You will have to relocate your gas tank though... on our trucks they are right in they way. i'd suggest a fuel cell under the back where the spare tire goes. or you can section your stock one but that is tricky.

    I think when the lead company's in air ride suspension tell the public not to do it...We should listen to them instead of listening to Can-do or internet Fabricators...Larry at innovative and Tony at Air Ride both aren't fond of Reverse's and either is Doug from SIC...This is straight quote from Air Ride Technologies Catalogue "NO NO NO!!! By the way did we say NO?! It doesn't matter what the truck magazines say.. DO NOT run the 4 link bars backwards!" My oppinion is....just cuz some people do it and dont have problems doesn't make it right..

    Depends who it comes from....If it comes from the big respectful name like Air Ride or Innovative Air Suspension then ya...Like will i listen to Can-do saying the reverse 4link is ok to run?? NOPE...coming from a guy that ran his old business in the ground.. It's plain and simple, but thats just me

    There is only one place who makes a 4 link for a blazer and its for a 1st gen 2 door so everything else has to be custom made

    i got a 2gen 4dr gmc jimmy... i got the link from sd.com i got the long bars 28inches and the short 24inches...however i wish i would have gotten the short bars like 18inches it would have been a lot easier but a crossmember in the rear for the short bars..(for all the haters yes it is a 50/50 link and havent had a problem with it ....lol) and made bags mounts that go over top of the 4 link end...so no it was not made for my truck, i made it fit
