Lets see your 4-link mounts

i am trying to figure out the best way to mount my heims to my frame and would like to see what some of you guys have come up with.. please post some of you brackets/designs/fab jobs.

I would like to mount my upper mounts THROUGH the frame, but i have a box frame and am afraid of collapsing the rail. thought about sleeving it with a tube.. thought about re-inforcing the frame... thought about alot of things, but not sure how any of them will work.

Nothing fancy. But it works.






Lowers Crossmember


Uppers

I ran tube threw the frame, and also put a strip of 3/8" Flat bar on the frame where I ran the 4 bolts threw to hold the uppers crossmember.

He dosent use "pulse" :p
How far in front of the tube is the coilover mounted? Does that give any leverage issues? I've been thinking about doing it that way or leaning the coilover.

That one is actually mine. You can tell by the differnce in the welds :D

I would have to measure but I would say its about 4-5" in front of the tube. I havent had any problems with it. I had to mount them like that because I have very little clearance from inside of the tire to my frame. The further up the better the clearnace got and I didnt want a huge angle on them.

Rear four link on my Scrambler frame. Upper links mounted on inner frame. Fabbed the brackets myself, fully boxed top and bottom. Bolt mounts through the frame sleeved with a piece of piece of tube. Angled the tube/mount to be perpandicular to links. No problems after two years of abuse.

Thickness of those tubes?
main tube is 2" - .250 wall and the gussets are 1.5" - .120 wall. I think the flat-bar is 1/4" & the link mounts are 3/8"...
