3 link material ?'s

Ok, Im getting ready to start picking up my material to do my SAS. A few questions though....

1. I have been looking at the 2.63 Ballistic joints. Is this over kill for the lower arms, or should I just run a different joint? If so, what size joint?

2. The 3 link joint itself, what is the best route for this, what size joint and DOM?

3. What is a good size DOM for the lower links?

Figure I will be on 38's and am somewhat of an aggressive driver

Id run 2" OD .25" Wall DOM on the lower links.

the 2.63" joint would be perfect. I like their 3" Joints BEEF.

on the upper seems like 1.5" OD or 1.75" with either .120 wall or a .134 wall would be good

I've noticed alot of builds have joints similar to Ballistics for the frame mounting points, and then they run heims on the axle end........
