doesnt that year have leaf springs in the rear. you could make trailimg arms out of square tubing and you could run power balls on it but its gonna be a mean lift instead of runnin a 3link try a reverse 4 because when u got to lay out your truck with the 3 link the tire might rub your fender.

NAW IT'S STANDARD.....YOUR TRUCK HAS LEAFS.....WITH SOME FABRICATION YOU CAN CONVERT TO A 3-LINK OR 4-LINK
FOR THE CYLINDER...PUSH DOWN ON THE AXLE...BUT REINFORCE SOME OF THE REAR FRAME

i plan on reinforceing the whole frame and notching the rear so what does a reverse 4 look like? or you have a pick of a setup similar to what im lookin for?

dont a a reverse 4 link if you like to drive the truck alot. when you are brakeing it actually unloads the tires. you have the space to do a triangulated 4-link so i would do that. its the best design.

say no toreverse 4 links

do a nice triangulated 4 link like swingin80lincoln said

or evan a wishbone up top and parallel links on bottom

and run the cylinders on the trailing arms not the axel
how high of a lock up do you plan to have in the rear?
