I'm no engineer, but isn't that going to put a ridiculous amount of pressure on the crossmember? More because there are two mounting points on the axle side, exerting more leverage than a standard 3 link? Again, no engineer. I'm assuming you can't run a 3 link without a track bar in this case since they are trailing arms?

Take a wee closer look at the center link, they have it connected to not one, but two crossmembers. If you tear that off, you drive like shit, or you are fucked anyways because you're rolling down the side of a mountain.

Well, that sums it up. We would not be able to use those words exactly, but that is good...

Yes, there is no track bar in this system at all in the rear and the rear pinion cycle is correct.... There are a lot of wishbone or triangulated kits out there coming from the back that yield pinion changes that are not desired...

The system is very close. We are still playing with the (2) rear coils to get the transitions right. Other than that, it is a go. We have broken a lot of stuff in testing this kit to ensure when you get it, it will not happen to you!

Is the crossmember mount the same as in your standard 3-link kits?

Is that a mono-ball or a bushing at the frame end of the trailing arm?

It is a Pro Series Krawler Joint at the Frame connection and a welded tube version at the axle end..

I can see if the owner can get us an image of it from the rear. It looks nasty!

Looks like your the best person to ask how it works then. Obviously the design leans more to the go-fast side of things, but how does it work in the slow stuff where articulation comes into play? Anything you wish it did better?
