Rear 4 link

So I cannot search for this info here since I have not yet contributed, but I do need some help. I am playing with the idea of linking the rear of my 2000 SAS Taco. I am currently building an HP D60 and a FF 14bolt for axles. I am running leafs front and back. I will eventually link the front, but for now I want to practice on the rear. Is there any good info out there to study? I have read a few articles about links and so on, but I want to see if there is something a little more model specific. Thanks!

Hey Nate- I can help you out with the numbers. I've done a mock up design in Pro-e also. Just have link yet. I also know a guy that gets a good deal on 7075 and can drill and tap the ends - 1.75" I would recommend going that route it's about $500 but you'll have a bullet proof set-up. Also make sure one end is done with poly bushings. anyhow shoot me an email.

So you just plug in the knowns and it spits out the numbers? That is cool! I keep going back and forth on if I want to take on this extra job right now with everything else that is on my plate...with the truck that is. I also figured it would be an opportune time since I won't be able to rush things. I am at least another 60 days out for the rest of the work. Or, I just use the $$$ to link the front and wait to do the rear when I get more time...Either way, I will be buying you a few cases of that stuff you like to drink for your smarts!

no I wish....it's not a 4link program it's a 3d modeling software used in mechanical design.
