use a 4 link and get rid of the leafs. Also, you are going to want a notch because if you don't you will hit bottom and have limitations on how low you can go, even when parked.

mine is linked up. the floor was cut a lot.
if you dont want to cut the floor, you can still do small bolt-in notch
IT DOESNT HAVE TO BE BOLT IN JUS BECAUSE ITS BELOW THE FLOOR-- BOLT IN NOTCHES ARE FUCCIN GAY.. jus do a simple under floor notch-- BUT WEELD IT IN NO MATTER WHAT

If you do it RIGHT-- and not skimp on the metal- and make sure it is completely WELDED UP- you can cut all but 1inch off your frame- BUT YOU HAVE TO BOX IT GOOD- and make sure you weld it up pROperly. When you lower it- you dont wanna have the axle IN THE FRAME as it sits there-- then you have no travel-- but if you lower it to the point of you axle bein at the bottom of your frame when sittin still-- the 3 to 4 inches of travel you will have will leave you ridin pretty good.
