ALMERAZ's 4-Link/16" Coil Overs

Well, Midnighter's have another 4-Link in the family. Congrats to Jorge (Almeraz) on your Front 4-link. Jorge, Lynne and I spent about 50 hours converting his leaf spring set up into a 4-link with Coil Overs. Took us 5 days to complete, man was this a challenge. Thanks to Rastus for bending our shock hoops and tubing used on skid plate. As well as letting us use the nitrogen tank.

Pics are on this link. This is my first true welding project, so don't make too much fun. With practice, I hope to get better, but hopefully welds will stay together.

looks good but how bad is the bump steer? i see you have hydro assist as well so that should help.

I believe it is 2.375 " OD x (.437 wall). We found Tubing at Ashley's in SA. It is the same tubing my wife runs on her jeep.

ttkid524 will become famous soon enoughttkid524 will become famous soon enough
why the 4 link when you still have a steering box? isnt the bumpsteer a real pain?

just looks like you would be better off with a 3 link with a track bar rather than the triangulated 4 link

looks good either way

Mostly 4-link for the articulation. Bumpsteer not a problem. We plan on going full hydro in the future, but need more $$$$ for that. Like most projects, working our way up, one upgrade at a time. Thanks for comments.
