Wayne - 4-Link with Panhard

Wayne,

I read in the Dana FAQ thread that you are going to swap out your archaic POS leaf spring suspension for a fancy schmancy link set-up with Fox Shox. First of all, glad to see that you have finally found your way out of the cave and into modern times.........

Now fer the tech........ Why are you opting for a parallel 4-link with panhard rather than a triangulated 4-link?!? Seems to me that the panhard would be just another bar to get in the way. This not even considering the quirky characteristics of a panhard under flex.

So I ask you why, even if you are a Neanderthal.......

BTW, what´s your time frame for this?!? I´m going 4-link (triangulated) and Fox Shox as well....... Wanna race?!?!

I'm still waiting for mine. I ordered them mid December, and I think I am now #3 on the list. Also waiting for some stuff from Rockstomper, but that was mailed and is in the hands of the boarder patrol now You either get screwed by UPS or at the boarder. I have 69 days to complete mine before we test it in Moab.

I talked to them and it should be around 3 weeks. No great rush as I am still working on the 4-link. I have also set the ride height according to the 16" ones. Hey why not get 16" for the same price as 14? I have lots of time. As long as they arrive the day before I leave for Moab
