They are pretty much the same thing. I preffer the traingulated (sling-shot) for hydros. This is cuz the upper arm stabalizes the suspension the way it should. But, it also allows plenty of travel for the hydros to work smoothly.

TRIANGULATED 4 LINK IS THE BEST , IT ALLOWS THE CENTERING OF THE AXLE TO BE ADJUSTABLE...PLUS ON BIG INCH REAR TRAVEL
ALLOWS FOR MORE SIDE ARTICULATION...I JUST DID A 64 IMPALA
WITH 42'' LOWER ARMS AND 28'' UPPERS ,AND IT HAS 28'' OF TRAVEL WITH PERFECT DRIVELINE ANGLE. I'LL POST A PIC TOMORROW... :biggrin:

wishbone/slingshot is superiour to a 4-link for hydro use, it allows all the 3-wheelin' action without any bend... a 4-link that's pulled up on 3 causes alot of bend.
u can get the heavy duty heim joints for the 4-link and it will twist in any way

if you use heim joints on a 4-link setup it wont hold the axle sideways -at all...
