Default Link setups without gas tank relocation.

I'm wanting to do a link setup to replace my monoleaf nightmare. Can anyone post pictures and info on different variations that don't involve relocating the gas tank? Thanks in advance.

How does it perform, do you have your axle wondering side to side?

A 3link setup will perform just as well as a 4link - the real issue is how low the tank is in the stock location

and on the 3 link , you want the center pivot of the bar as close to middle as possible... so the axle will articulate as even as possible...

Would this be something you would be able to do one of your "almost ready to go" kits for?

You could always do a 3-link with a panhard or watts link instead of a wishbone setup. They used to be real popular until some of the other suspension setups became more trendy, lol.
