Update. After wheeling for the past year and busting several sets of front leaf springs thought I would try my hand at link suspensions. Ordered a ruffstuff four link kit, undercover fab truss, and a pair of saw 2.5 air shocks. Here is a few pics will update as I make some more progress. Need to get it done for the first race at twisted trails.

Well time for the winter upgrades. The plan is to four link the rear with air shocks and tube the rear making it a juggy. Here is the start and I guess the easy part cutting it in half.






This is how it sits as of tonight.

Upper shock mounts on. Sold the ruffstuff truss that came with the link kit and bought one from artec I think that it looks much nicer.
