    Might start my 4-link build soon

    Ive been getting a parts list together and Im planning on starting to build my 4-link soon. It will be slow moving because it is my daily driver but I plan on just fabbing up everything on the weekends little by little. My plan is to get all the bracing and brackets fabbed while everything is pretty much together. Im going to build it inboard on the frame rails and leave my leaf springs connected until I have everything built and get ready to put the coilovers on and cut out the leafs. So for awhile I will have 4-link with leaf springs until its ready to change all the way over lol.

    Most sports require one ball, motocross requires two.

    Racing isn't a matter of life and death, it's much more important than that.

    4 link connect up while leafs are in tact
    will bind up and give no suspension arc, or travel.

    Should be a cool project.

    I'm not going to have the 4-link bars connected, just fabbing up the brackets while its still leaf spring. Once I'm ready to switch I'll remove the leafs, attach coilovers and bars.

    Correct. The other thing not to forget is the fuel cell, if you haven't addressed that already.

    I will have to keep and eye on this one. I am starting to get a crazy idea to road race/autocross my truck at some point and would love to have the adjust-ability of a 4 link.
