UNIVERSAL AND PICKUP REAR 4-LINK KITS
Our most popular pickup 4-link kit, designed to fit a stock pickup frame is also available as a universal kit. The universal kit (left) comes extra-wide and can be trimmed to fit any chassis application. Both are designed to work with any straight-axle rearend housing.
These fully adjustable, urethane-bushed kits feature four 1-inch od X .156-inch wall seamless-tube links, two aluminum/adjustable coilover shocks, a three position lower shock-mount for adjustable ride height, and two styles of adjustable Panhard bars to choose from.
All lazer-cut weld-on (3/16-inch thick) brackets are included, while the front and rear crossmembers with brackets welded in the correct position (come extra wide in the universal kit) are pre-fit to mount in the stock pickup frames. The forward J-tubes are also part of the kit. Ask about our optional front and rear, 1-inch od, sway bars for any of our applications! We do have application-specific kits, so please specify the year of your pickup.
TYPICAL REAR 4-LINK
|UNIVERSAL REAR END KIT|
|Our universal rear end kit, for any vehicle, features a new 9-inch housing any width (at no extra cost) with new axle flanges, 31-spline Dutchman alloy axles (or optional 33 or 35-spline alloy axles), ½-inch axle studs, 18-or-24-inch long adjustable, urethane bushed, 1-inch od X .156-inch wall 4-link bars, an adjustable, urethane-bushed, low roll-center Panhard bar (1-inch od X .156-inch wall) and a forward 4-link crossmember (1 ¾-inch od X .120-inch wall) that comes extra wide so you can trim to fit you application. To support the forward 4-link crossmember, we include “J-Tubes” that run from the frame back to the forward 4-link crossmember. We also include aluminum adjustable-rebound coilover shocks with a multi-hole bracket on the housing for the stance you like best. All brackets are tig-welded to the housing before it is jig-narrowed and jig-straightened. We provide all grade-8 gold-Zinc fasteners, washers and Nylock nuts and instructions.
Notice the axle tube braces between the center housing and the 4-link brackets on the housing. This gives your axle tubes a little more strength for high torque output. Your options include thirdmembers with any gear ratios, different spring rates (at no extra cost), disc brake kits, coilover shocks with double adjustment for rebound-and-compression and Air Ride Technologies remote operated ShockWave air suspension system.
