4 link on samurai

I'm thinking about putting a 4link suspension system on my samurai. Can anyone guide me to diagrams and step by step pictures of how to do this. This would really hehlp me a lot. I do not want to buy a kit, to expensive right now. thanks.

There is alot more to putting a four link in to any vehicle. You might be better off buying a kit if you have never done something like this before. You need to know the right seperation between top and bottom links as well as the amount of triangulation in the links. Lot more work in it and math than it seem your thinking.You need to choose hiems or johny joints ,type of tubing, link mount material, steering...................... Buy a kit or have someone help you that has done this already. Not really alot of room under a sami either. Frame is really thin so where ever you place a mount make sure you plate the frame.

Mine isn't a Sami, but I did a 4-link on my Scout.

Read, Read, Read...

There are plenty of brackets and available for a 4-link right now. Go through my build and take a look at some of the decisions you need to make.

This is not that hard to do, so just do lots of research and planning. It was fun to do, and works really well.

So you think you want to build a 3-link Build

Most any links will work offroad at low speed(10mph or less) Street driving you better be right or we will send flowers
