    Radius arms or 3 link are commonly used in the front due to clearance issues (engine, exhaust, tires turning, etc.), though there are others. They each have their pros/cons. Which one is better depends on your circumstances and who you talk to. Don't even think about it without investing a significant portion of your life to understanding the nuances of Squat/Anti-Squat, Instant Center, Roll Center, Roll Axis, and dozens of other cool terms you'll never see anywhere else. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
