TJ Rear Susp. 4 link or "3.5" link

Doing research on what to do with my rear suspension. Going with 4.5" RE coils. Gonna home-brew long-arm it, and wonder about the pros and cons of a traditional 4 link with triangulated uppers vs. the full-traction style 3 link?

Discuss.

i would think a triangulated 4 link would be stronger since you have two ends on the axle handling the stress as opposed to one end on the axle handling stress. i also dont like the two links welded to one idea

I would do a 4 link, triangulated uppers and lowers.
