Suspension thoughts!

I am going to redo my front suspension on barney. I have the coilovers and crossover steering and I am going to relocate the the tierods behind the axle. I cant decide what suspension to do. 4 Link, 3 Link, Y arms, triangulated 4 Link, etc. What are your thoughts on these ideas? I am mainly going to do rocks and hills.

What Kind of steering? I ask because that is what might determine what is best for you. If you are going full hydro then go triangulated 4 link all the way.---------------Kyle

Dude, you're like the Pirate pimp. Why go to pirate and read all the BS flaming when you can log on here and ask a question of your peers, that at least pretend to half ***** respect you, and not get a homosexual web raping? I mean, the guys on pirate have nothing better to do than critique you grammer and spelling like a bunch of power tripping English Professors.

jtj, I dont have a good answer, I'm in the same dilemma as you.

As far as searching pirate......... why? I am more than capable of doing all of these and have ran the numbers over and over again. They all cost about the same. They all have their own good and bad points. I was set on the triangulated 4 link until I saw red bull's comp crawler and it is running Y arms up front. Most other comp crawlers are running 3 links. I am going to be running hydro assist for now but might upgrade to full hydro in the future. I really dont need full hydro until I have more than 16" of travel. The coilovers I have are not that long. They have about 12-14" travel. The guys on pirate know their stuff but most are not from around here, so they dont know the terrain. I dont want a comp crawler and I dont want a street queen. I want some thing I can drive on the street (very little) and still crawl what ever I point it at with out feeling tipsy. I am really leaning toward a 3 link set up with panhard. I have 4 ballistic joints for the lower links already. Just need to order some 3/4 heims for the upper and some for the rear also. I am probably going to stretch the wheel base while I am at it. But first things first....... Get the truggy running so I can play with it!
