4 link front suspension ?'s

Maybe this is a dumb question. Does anything change setup-wise when you are building a 4 link for the front of a vehicle? The reading I have done seems to be focused on the rear. Am I not looking hard enough? Mainly I am wondering if you would want to increase or decrease anti-squat compared to what is in the rear.

I'm no god of the 4 link suspension, but substitute "anti-squat" for "anti-dive"

There's some really good threads on PBB, try searching for "anti-dive" and see if that bring anything up.

This one is pretty good, /forum/general-4x4-discussion/168577-link-suspensions-dummies.html it's been awhile since I read it, but I think it covers anti-dive and setting up a front 4 link as well. A lot of guys end up running a 3 link with track bar(panhard bar) up front due to packaging to clear the engine, steering, etc.

Cool, I will give that a try.

I don't really have a 4 link, but I am thinking maybe I can tune it similar to one. I have a shackle reversal on the leaves and link bars below the axle. The angle on the bars is fairly steep, and I am wondering if that is causing my wheel hop problem.
