How do you like your set up, do you feel there are big gains going three link on OEM spring set up ? was worth it. How does it drive on the street.refer to post 130
Thanks for the feedback.I love the 3link hands down. The 3 link gives me full control on adjustments i my garage.
The ride is as good or better than the stock set up.
Travel is a 9+ over the stock.
Ground clearance is awesome, no under axle hang ups.
Worth every penny and Time I put in.
Only thing I would change is, going to Coil overs,ONLY for room to do Pan hard/other bracketry.
It’s a lot of work and I’ve been getting alot of help from friends. It’ll be awesome when it’s all done. But I genuinely think that the front end needs to be a complete project if you don’t want to be disappointedGood to see you are making progress and seem to understand what you are doing. I was thinking about a set of those knuckles being that my axle is out and disassembled but you have convinced me not to do that. I think that for an 80, I’m at the point of diminishing returns already.
I just looked at your set up. I definitely explored that option. I’d get into the oil pan at ride height. I was told that I needed to match the 3 degree slope of the drag link and the axle side mount had to be a bit higher than yours. I also think my ride height is substantially lower than yoursJust curious, why people think they have to keep the Pan hard bar on top of the front axle??
Axle top limits travel as Squeegee has pointed out.
Options for the pan hard are variable, on top of the axle or move it REAR ward.
I opted to put it behind the axle.
The frame side mount is behind the steering box, and crosses next to the front diff.
My pics are very dark now, will up load tomorrow.
