Critique My 4-link numbers



This is for a 88 Cherokee, gonna run 12" airshocks.

I'm gonna build the upper frame bracket to mount 1" up and 1" down, changes the anti-swat about 15% both ways.

What do you think?

Looks similar to mine, and I'm happy with it so far.



Looks from your numbers that the frame side mounts are gonna hang down sort of far though.

Well I am only running 5" of lift and my tires measure out to 35" with 10 psi in them, so that puts me a little lower than you, i think. I measured so they were up flush with the bottom of the frame rails, very similar to yours.

Thanks for the repsonse, I've gotten a lot of ideas from your build, which will definitely help me with my build.

Did you make it up to Rausch Creek last weekend? I saw a post that you were going, I was there but didnt see your jeep. I was hoping to see it so I could get some more ideas for my project.

Hey Vetteboy, how do you like the wheelbase? I am getting ready to start linking the rear of my MJ and cant decide on a 104wb or pushing it out to 108. Also have you adjusted the rear suspension to test out different AS numbers? Just wondering on how they react and if you would change anything.

Thanks,
AARON

Wheelbase is great. The thing climbs very well. If/when I do coilovers in the rear I'll probably push it back another inch or two...even with the real slim bumper I have on the back it still catches more than I'd like when dropping off stuff.

I should be able to go +/- 10% AS in the rear, but I haven't touched it yet...I haven't had any issues at all with where it is, and it's kind of a pain in the ass just for the sake of playing with it. Overall though I'm very happy with how the front and rear systems work together and how it feels going over stuff.
