Josh: Here we are in the mock up stage of our rear 4-Link suspension. We're using a Ride Tech Air Bar because we're using an '88 rear end we're using these weld-on brackets, but most of the kits if you have an 8 or a 9 inch with a factor leaf spring they have a bolt-on bracket also. We're using the HQ series shockwave bags. At the core of this 4-Link is this bracket up here that bolts in the factory mounting locations. The lower bars bolt in to your factory front leaf spring mounts and obviously to these rear brackets. We have the upper 4-Link bars with Heim Joint ends and they're adjustable so you can set your pinion angle.
Like I said, this is just a mock-up stage. We've cut all the bracketry off of this '88 rear end. Once we get everything measured, set up, welded on solid, we're actually going to cut the ends off this '88 and put 9 inch ends on. That's basically how our rear suspension gets set up. It's pretty easy, quick bolt-on, functions really, really well. With the shockwaves we have we'll have full height adjustment and great handling.
Bill: We have our front suspension pretty much finished. Now that the rears mocked-up we can work on finishing that up and then we can move on to our braking system. Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel for more updates on our project 50-30.
