About Linkage Rear Suspension

Linkage rear suspension systems are easily one of the biggest upgrages you can do to your truck. Leaf springs are far from ideal for higher speed offroad driving, and the most proven, realiable high performance rear suspsion design in off-road racing is linkage syspension. A linkage suspension system controls the axles path of motion,its relative driveline angle, allows for controlled ratio shock mounting, as well as the obvious advantage of much more wheel travel. Linkage suspension systems for trucks come in (mostly) 2 designs, 3-Link and 4-Link. The difference is in the number of connecting points on the axle to the chassis. 3-link uses a wishbone-style arm using w front pivot points and a single rear pivot point connecting to the axle, whereas 4-link uses two independant connecting rods connecting the axle to the chassis. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages, and we reccomend you research them both to decide which will be best.

What you're getting yourself into....

Putting this on your truck is no simple task though, and shouldn't be attempted by anyone who isn't completely confident in their abilities. Along with the linkage system itself, you'll need shocks, the fuel tank must be replaced or relocated, the entire rear frame needs to be modified, the axle needs to be modified, and driveline must be setup properly. Its HIGHLY reccomended that the axle be upgraded when putting a linkage rear suspension system. These parts, along with all the work to install and adjust them, is not cheap or easy, and many of the modifications are essentially permanent. That being said, with some research, a few tools, and a lot of measuring, a moderately experienced metal fabricator should have no problem setting this up.
