mine are 35" apart on the axle they are further apart about 40" on the frame. The reason for the difference in the seperation is so the tires wouldn't hit the links while turning. this is with the hubs flipped and about 3 1/2 inches of backspacing.


hope this helps,
Jeremy

bobo, are your hubs flipped out or in? Also, are you talking about your front or rear axle?

The hubs are in. I have the same aet-up front and rear. was originally going to run a reverse four link sort of like this |\/| with the lowers triangulated with about 40 inches of horazontial (sp) seperation but thisdid not allow enough room to turn with 44's so i just angled them in until there was enough room.

Note: this had never been run i don't know how it will work. it is sort of a double triangulated 4 link......but then again not really.

Not sure if you were being sarcastic but I think this is a decent way to test the suspension. You can push the side of a Jeep with leaf springs and watch the axle move side to side under the body. None of the link suspensions I've built have done that.
