check the AZ TTORA board. There are several members there with custom 3-link setups along the line you are looking to do.
look for Kaistie, Bovads, faux x 4, Howyadoin, etc.

the AZ board is a lot different than the national board ...fewer pussies...more actual wheelers

I was wanting to do a 4 link but the dam exhaust hangs to low on the passanger side to stuff anything on that side. The tig welder showed up this morning

Ordered the Brackets, Shocks, air bumps, and heims/johnnie joints all from 4 wheel underground. Brian has never done a Tacoma but i really liked his bracket designs so 3 weeks and counting and the new build begins. I will start the build thread when i get started. If any one has pic or comments please feel free.

Got the pvc links installed and this is where the numbers are going to be close to landing, should only be minor changes from this.

Why would you want the AD or AS at 80 on the front?

From my research I have found that it works pretty good. What would you recomend?

Tune the shocks to resist the anti dive rather then use AD.

On the rear 80% works. I "PERSONALLY" like 50% give or take on the front. I've found that higher AD numbers tend to lift the nose during hill climbs. Im currently at about 46% in front and 60% in back. We'll see how the back works though.

Scot that looks awesome. Im going to make that same small tweak to the frame brackets as you did in the next production set. This is really great news. I already know that the rear 4link will work too.
