im building a 4 link for my truck. im going to do a triangulated 4 link in the rear. would this work in the front or should i go with the standard type 4 link front. any advantages or disadvantages with going triangulated.


Thanks rick

Full hydro steering? If not then don't run a triangulated 4 link front. If you do your front axle will move straight up and down while your draglink creates bump steer. Run a 3 or 4 link with panhard bar and keep the panhard at the same angle and length as the draglink.

If it is full hydro then go triangulated as long as you have no clearance issues in the front with items such as driveshafts, crossmembers, oil pans, etc.

if you are going to go full hydro steering go with a triangulated 4-link. If you are going to keep that pesky drag-link use a 3-link with a Panhard bar. A 4-link plus a Panhard bar won't flex!(it turns the axle tube into a really thick swaybar /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif).
