Looking really good Jey. What are you using to bend that metal at such clean angles? Just a press brake? What thickness is that? Looks like 3/16".

how deep in is that mounted? seems like the links are gonna be so long that you wont have the angle needed. But I have not looked into a 4 link enough to know for sure.

I'm assuming those are going to be going out about as far as they can on the axle, and his wheelbase is a ton shorter than ours. I can see it working

well i know.. but the longer the wheel base, the less of an angle the brackets have to be at, thats what i was getting at.
