k going with a faster setup next year 1/2 valves and line which i have now, GC valves and slams all the way around, the front goes up like a mutha now as it is but the back is slower, i have my main leaf in with the overload, I seen a yota hopping pretty high with mono leaf and also a silverado but with a 2 link, does the monoleaf restrict speed????....i have like 300lbs of extra stereo and shit in the back as you can see in pics i have previously posted and that also has something to do with it but I am planning to do a cantilever 2 link, just wonndering if it will give me less restriction so it moves more freely and will i be able to do better side to side?....someone help me out, thanks all

id go with a 3-link or a 4-link they give better range of motion and keep the pinon angle better alinged. are you going to use your rig for a daily driver or just for weekends

a two link wont let you do a good side to side actiona three link is crap it pulls your rear end from side to side when u adjust the hight go with a triangulated four link .U will be happy with it im gonna switch to a four reallly soon :biggrin: and yes the leaf springs to hold you back from speed

it is my daily summer ride and i want to get some good lift out if it, like cantilever, ride is an important issue too
placing bags nearer pivot point of link bars ( at frame )
will give u shit loads of lift..

looks like a cantilever 4 link to me, with a razor blade on the driver side tire for doing lines of coke :)
