The first thing I see is that you have your entire front axle and rear axle weights listed as your unsprung weights. You should only have the axle weights (complete axle,tires,wheels,etc) and half of your link weight for your unsprung weight. Not having the right weights(at least ball park) will affect your as numbers. Front on the front numbers and rear on the rears.

Here you go. I would also use the newest 4 link calc with the travel mod. Both that and the 3 link are at the top of page 1
