    Will the coil overs hold up the blazers weight and has anyone done this before?( A 4-link in general ) /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
    I think this would work great if not too heavy. Also any suggestions would be great /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Try doing a search.....

    YES it can be done (and HAS been done).... you will find numerous threads on multi-link suspensions and if you do a little digging, you can find plenty of photos too.

    Stupid I know but yeah its called Sellersville. Some guy used to own a bar in it that was Named Seller's and they named it after that. The liberty bell passed through our town at one point on its trip to Philly. I actually live in West Rockhill(can't guess what we ahve a lot of can you?).

    Yep, as others say, it can and has been done. The 2.5's shouldn't have a problem holding you up but you can run 3"ers if you really want too but can be hard to fit. Make sure you completely understand all the points of a 4 link system and how to design one. Nothing worse than someone throwing a bunch of tube and heims under there to have something that performs worse than stock...

    not trying to hijack hopefully this question will help the person who started the thread, but anyway.... Where can i read about how to setup the links? the only thing that i heard is that the angles have to be somewhat close to the same for all four links, thx.

    Go to Pirate and start reading... There is a ton more to it than that, and what you said is not even true... There are also quite a few books out there I would recomend.
