4 seater buggy build "C.H.F #1 CHASSIS"

I started a new family buggy so here go's

-Chassis A mix of 1" to 1 3/4" toob.

-D60 Front and rear, Bobbys CVs in front

-Tbi 350

-TH400 full manual VB

-Atlas

-42" SX2's Steel wheels with copperhead fab beadlocks

-Radflo 2.5 16" air shocks

So the goal is to have a rig to carry the family and gear, but still be able to run any trail with ease... Dont get excited there is still alot of tube to go and what not...

Have you ran that type of 4 link before with the straight upper links? I have heard they work well.
