First off I should explain my thoughts so this dosen't sound too strange to you guys.

A few years ago I started seeing brackets that completely disregarded all the rules about Link Suspensinons as we knew them to be. The changes that have come to be accepted as the way to do it no longer care about seperation, not vertical or linear. Did those rules change overnight? No, they didn't. What changed was a few companies saw a way to make things easier, for them and the many people bought into the idea. Now every company making anything for link suspensions has these. Why don't we?

We do not make a combination upper/lower link bracket with 4" (or less) of vertical seperation and no inches of linear seperation. I simply do not agree with it. It certainly makes installations easier but it also limits you to only what you can do using that type of bracket.

Our Link Brackets are not holding you to any pre-determined limits. Our Link Brackets ALLOW you to make your rig work as well as you can design it. Not limiting you in any way.

I know I am going to get some flack for this but I believe everyone is entitled to an opinion and this is mine. Anyway here they are, our new 4 Link Kits!

For Framed Rigs



This is it, everything in one package for a great price, and not low end stuff just to be cheap either! The kit is wrapped around 8 of our 1.25" Heat Treated Chromoly Heims with Stainless High Misalignment, Zink Plated Jam nuts, and 1.5" Tube ID Weld Bungs. Not a cartridge type joint in sight.

The Upper Frame brackets are our 25 degree 5 way Adjustable link brackets. The Lower Frame brackets are our venerable Chassis Link brackets, time tested and proven for optimum performance.

For the axle end we have our Axle Mount Link brackets and our New Truss that we have refined for additional strength while shedding uneeded pounds. On the Truss we keep it simple with 4 of our 3/8" thick Flat Bottomed Link Tabs.

For Tube Chassis Rigs



Everything on the axle is the same as the other but the tube side is different.

The Upper Chassis brackets are our 10-35 Degree 5 Way Adjustable Tube Mount Link brackets. The Lower Chassis brackets are 10-35 Degree 3 way Adjustable Tube Mount Link brackets for optimum performance.

The only choice you need to make is if the Truss needs to span a Large third member (D60, D70, 14 Bolt, Sterling, Eaton, Dodge 9.75, etc...) or a Medium sized third member (Ford 8.8, D44, Ford 9", Toyota, etc...). If you want to make more changes give us a call and we can see what we can do!

These are on Special @ $737.50 for the framed and $678 for the tubed as you see them, about 15% less Than normal prices...

6/22 UPDATE, LOWER PRICE!

With these selling so well I did some math and with the increased quantities of all the pieces being sold we were able to lower the price 15%. We will let it run this way for a month or so and see if the demand keeps up, if it does we will be able to keep the price low! So far so good.

I should re-state this.

This kit is really good for any vehicle/axle combination but it dosen't come with pages and pages of instruction. The kit is for the kind of guy willing to do some research and decide for themselves just what would work best.

I am not the kind of guy to lie to you and say what we make is perfect for any situation, we make the parts so you can make it perfect for YOUR situation!

Another long night preparing for KOH. For those of you that do not know, we are supporting 15 teams that either run our axles or heims. And any other team that needs help. It is a huge undertaking and we are almost ready, 5 of us are leaving here next Friday for 8 days of fun and games (Work) on the lakebed...

Another long day, been loading the trailer all afternoon. The 5 of us going to KOH will be leaving about 9pm, driving all night should arrive just before 9 am in time to set up the Pit.

It will be business as usual for everyone still here in the shop though...I feel bad for them but I am bringing a different group this year and the newer ones will come next year!
