Do u mean two lowers and a wishbone upper, OR two lowers, one upper and a panhard? Are u gonna move the gas tank? Is it street driven?

If 3link w panhard, Id use hiems on one end and a $5 yj bushing(1.5"od) on the other on the lowers. A rh and lh hiem for the upper to adjust pinion angle and similar for the panhard. Ive had jjs go bad. But others have had hiems go bad. Bushing on one end seems to help absorb the shock/jolts that beatup the hiems.

Id prefer a 4 link in the rear though. W triangulater lowers or dual triang for roll center. The tri lowers w wishbone upper is essentially the same geometrically as well(if u know what ur doing on any of these setups).

I run 18's on back of my rig, its overkill. Mine are limited to 15.5-16 with limiting strap's. I noticed no negatives by limiting them but its deffinitly more stable with them limited.


I've killed a a bunch of Tg joint's(knock off JJ's) but no 1.25 heim's yet. Only heims I've had issue's with were in my panhard bar.

I've seen some killed TG creeper joints. I have beat on my barnes (midwest control product) 1.25" heims with no issue. Like booger mentioned, I also use poly bushing on one end, seems to keep the heims from slapping around.

I do not sell any Midwest control heims.
