I know, I wanted to run ford C bushings and tractor joints, but this cal poly guy told this link suspension thing would work way better.
LOL Now thats funny!!!:D

So how dose your coilovers differ from say a race runner?? A 4" diam. seams really big!! Got any pics of them? Sounds interesting:grinpimp: :smokin:

Looks good overall, the only thing I noticed is that there is not much seperation on the rear upper links, but the lower links converge alot also, so they will share some of the side load on the axle. I have seen a few vehicles with shallow angles on their upper links that wear out heims and bushings rapidly, some have even broken the frame mounts (some of Leduc's handywork). The front might have the same problem unless you are using a panhard bar. Another result of this situation is the side deflection of the axle, the rear will not be as big of a deal, but you will lose steering preciseness in the front.

Rear uppers are 22 deg. and the lowers are 33 deg.

Front uppers 20 deg. lowers 47 deg.

Steering is full hydraulic so no load from the steering box just cornering.

What would you consider minimum link angles using RE joints?
