Here's a few I found doing a search on Google...

3-link with a panhard bar...


3-link with a watts link...


Drawing I found...


Again... I found these on Google, not my work. The first one looks a little sketchy on the welds but you can see the bars pretty well. The second one looks nice but its kind of hard to see the bars. Your 3-link is basically one straight upper bar, two straight lower bars, and a lateral limiter such as a panhard bar or watts link.

here's mine, its lifted but I'm sure it could work with a lowered truck with some mods. the lowers are mounted to the bottom of the frame, but they are 3' long as well. shorter ones would bring them into the arch of the frame.

As stated before, you at least have to raise it up a bit. If not, dents and holes are in your future.

So with a setup like this the lower links most likely mount under the frame, much like the leaf front mount of the leaf spring?

Being that its better to have the pivot point in the center of the frame/axle this would be the the best third link?

I am seeing a lot of of these three links have a solid mount at both ends. would you not want to use like a hiem joint for articulation? I assume that with ends being solid mount no pivot that this setup can only lift both sides at one time so no side to side. Am i wrong? Just looks like it would create a ton of pressure on the mount tabs and bushings.
