i think this was a post b4 but i couldn't find it..what would happen if u notched your frame and cut your leaf springs right behind the lower shock mount... and then put a "stabilizer bar" going from frame to axle...would this be the same idea as a 2-3 link??? 99 chevy s10...thanks.

so a triangular 4-link is better than a parralle, why?
no need for panhard bar
no shifting in the rear end
up and down motion

im finally starting to buy stuff for my truck now and i wasent sure which 4-link to use. how do they affect side to side?
there are pro's and cons for each, i'll tell ya a couple...

good Triangulated...no panhard, lno side to side movement means you can run tighter tire to fender clearance. less hardware to buy and install, flexible bar placement

Bad triangulated...4 more attachment points than a parallel, angled upper bars can interfere with exhaust/fuel tank

Good parallel...slightly easier to install, More room for exhaust/fuel tank, can be put beside/inboard/outboard of framerail

Bad parallel...requires panhard bar, slight side to side movement means more tire fender clearance needed.
