    WELL IT LOOKS LIKE A TRUCK REAR END, BUT IT HAS THE UPPER LINKS, AND LOWER LINKS, AND THEN STABLIZERS FOR THE BAG SET UP. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD WORK PRETTY GOOD

    looks ok on the ground, but more importantly is how it looks at drive height. also need another pic because if your differential is offset then your bars will be off since they are located via the diff. and possibly not side to side. but it looks good. welds look good. more pics fool

    once you get some proper upper supports done,with the amount of lift it will be getting, it should be fine, unless we're missing somthing.

    The angle of the rear brackets on the pumpkin are wrong, they should be sitting straight up and down, otherwise they will bind, i know you have Heim joints so it might be ok, but it would move more easily with less wear if those tabs were moved . . . . . . .

    If you look down [ birds eye view ] on the 4 link you shouldn't be able to see the side of the tabs - does that make sense ?

    he wont get enough travel for it to bind with the bags over the axle like that

    you dont really need the forward bridge bar. then you could move your 4-link brackets to the top of the pumpkin. they would be less likely to bind up, if they were more verticle.

    I agree with the link tabs on the rear. They are angled wrong.
    The reason the rear twists upsetting your bag angle is due to a combination of bar lengths and pivot positions. Do you have any side view pics? Have you checked pinion angle through it's travel? That should be a concern.

    your upper links are to straight for the angle of your lowers as you rais eit up your gonna be nose down
    everything else is fine
    your heims are a little funky but fuck it they will compensate with pivot

    clock the lower axel brackets to 6:00 and shorten the brackets if needed

    and raise the lower frame brackets just a bit and keep the lower bars longer than uppers


    the least you can get away with is clocking the lower brackets at 6:00 and shortening the lower bars

    after that you would want to raise the lower frame mounting point by 1.5 inches

    whats happening is as your ride goes up your lowers are puching out and the uppers are pulling in

    PS:

    I've got absolutely nothing bad to say about your setup, or anyone elses that might look similar , but I see a HUGE no no in the air ride 4 link setups these days and I see the problem all the time.

    The way guys build triangulated 4 links 90% of the time is incorrect. Excuse my crude Microsoft Paint examples but this is how your setup looks. Now imagine how these bars are going to travel up and down. They are going to want to close in on each other due to the geometry of the pivot points. As the rear end travels up and down from theoretical ride height with the pivot points set up the way they are currently the triangle will close up.



    The way pivot points should be setup for ZERO binding is as follows. All the pivot points in the 4 link should be parallel with each other. An even better way of saying it would be that the points need to all run on the same axis in order for nothing to bind.

    This is a great picture to show how a correct triangulated 4 Link works, but like I said I wasn't knocking your work. In fact I think your rear suspension setup is really nice. In most cases the rear end of the vehicle won't travel far enough for binding to ever really be an issue anyways.
