    2 link? whats the reasoning for the bushings on those axle tabs.. its never gonna move at all, with how that tubing is welded to the lower bar.

    the axle basically only has one pivot with that setup..


    if a 2 link is what your after those bushing in the rear are a waste... just saying...

    I looked into doing a 3 or 4 link, but for what i had in my head, it would have been rather difficult. 1. I want to run the exhaust all the way out the back (which is totally possible with a 3 or 4 link, i know) 2. I had already built my lower bars when i started looking into a 4 link and I came into the problem of not enough triangulation and to get to the correct vanishing point on the truck with the 4 link mounts wouldn't work because my lower bars were going to be short, and since I lost my position at work last month and some money along with it, I cant afford to just be building all kinds of link bars. 3. I thought about doing a parallel 3 link, but I don't have any extra metal long enough to do it, or the money at the moment to buy it. 4. I want to run bag on bar so it saves a little space, and that ran in the way of the parallel 3 link and the tri 4 idea.

    while these are all considered excuses, thats what I'm going with.

    I fully understand what a 2link is capable of. I had one on my daily driver 4door blazer for the 8 years it was bagged. I never had a problem with it. I have also built a 4 link that was on my Isuzu P'up that I drove daily after the blazer. The blazer, in my opinion, handled better (less body roll, didnt sway) then the isuzu. But the isuzu rode better cuz it was bag on bar and my blazer was bag over axle. Both had rear shocks, and the isuzu had front shocks. Maybe the air pressure I rode at in both had an effect (the isuzu very minimum all around and the blazer had the front almost all the way up and the rear all the way down due to the large rims).


    But with all of that said, I'm not trying to attack you two. Just trying to explain what and why about my truck. I hate bagged trucks that have no inner bed and is all suspension/frame crap. It's not my thing. I also dont have a huge garage or the amount of money to build a frame like i would like to either.

    That is definately an overbuilt ladder bar setup you've got there :)

    The only real plus to using the bushings on the axle like you did is that it will allow for some articluation during daily driving, so things like potholes and turning up hills wont kick a wheel off the ground like a standard rigid 2-link will. It will also keep from tearing the axle tabs off (fixed a couple of those). The other thing that you've got going is that the bars are reletively long, so your pinion angle will be closer to acceptable outside of your ride height.

    As far as 2-links go, it's one of the better ones I've seen :)

    so things didnt work out the way i wanted them too with the 2link. so i changed it. ended up with a 3link.








    just gotta finish welding all the new tabs up, then i can start on the bag mounts!
