I'm contemplating building a 3 or 4 link setup for my YJ using dual rate coilovers and I was wondering where I could learn all about the suspension geometries involved. If it makes a difference I will be running this with 39.5" Boggers and full width axles.

I was looking for more of a book or something where I could find info about lengths of the links and angles and such.

Just spring it over, screw changing it to coils, and that's from a currently coil springer! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> SOA works great.

Well right now I am running SOA. If I dont go to 3 or 4 link with coilovers, I'll be running 4" springs on top of the SOA to clear 39.5s on those full width axles I mentioned. I want to do something different with my YJ and I think coilover is the way to go. I have the fabrication skills to do it, I just want to know about the geometries and such so I get it right the first time.

Babywrangle - Check out a book called Chassis Engineering. Geared mostly for race cars, but it will introduce you to the concepts you need to know.

Also check out HP Books "Making Your Car Handle". While it is geared more to race car set up it is loaded with tons of suspension geometry info.
