    I've heard the same thing about the rod ends like in the roadster's 4 link but they've got over 6,000 miles and are still OK.

    Well those ones I pictured have a grease fitting on them even. So why anyone just wouldnt grease them is beyond me.

    both have there benefits.. if your trying to get good sides go with a triangulated.. also you dont need a panhard bar w/ a triangulated..

    isnt it a bigger pain in the ass to mess with the tank when doing a tri link. and wouldnt it be easier to do a panhard bar than mess with the tank. i only want to go up and down not really side to side. just front to back thats all i care about.

    perverted joke, sorry you missed it.

    body shifting induced by panhard bars is lessen by increasing its length AND having the bar level at ride height.

    I was suggesting that taking the panhard short cut might limit your audience when it comes time to sell .....................as would a reverse or 50/50 IMO and not being able to hit sides.

    not to mention the whole yoke falling out of your transmission thing

    think about it here is a reverse 4 link, the ) represents the movement of the axle and the --- is the driveshaft

    and here is a forward 4 link

    (---

    anyone see the problem here. with a reverse 4 link you may get 0 degrees of pinion change but that still wont change the fact that the more lift you get the farther away your axle gets from your transmission. in turn this shows that if the back tires have too much travel your drifeshaft will fall out of your transmission. if you are going to run a reverse 4 link i would definately reccomend using some type of limiting device, for your, and everyone elses safety

    ohhhhhhhh i read it now. i get it that was good, nice fabricating on the sentence, cool. yeah so running a tri link is usually what everyone goes with then, right. so i need to move my tank? i bet running all the wiring and hoses longer is a pain in the ass. i would just use a 2door tank under there. and eliminate the spare.

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..
    If you think about what they are saying, they are talking about 50/50 setups. It took me forever to figure that out.
