Considering Linking It

My build hasnt been "finished" very long. But as some of you know, i am very unhappy with the underpowered TBI 350. I have started on my 454bbc and am shooting for atleast 450HP, That also brings the axle wrap issues. Thats why I am considering linking the rear. after a NEAR rollover saturday night i would like a little more flex. im trying to keep it as low as possible so fender clearance might be an issue. Anyone want to fill in on this? the best set-up? 1 link? 4 or 2 link? what springs to use? Will it be worth it? I actually do trail ride this thing. I am currently running 12 inch fronts and 8 inch rears with an ord shackle flip. Any help is aprreciated

If you are wanting something cheap easy and works well I would do a one link,I am in the middle of doing one on my jeep useing a 3 inch ballistic joint and areostar springs.I have also seen people use a grader ball or a bulldog hitch,they all seem to work great.

Clint, take it from someone who has done it. It's a huge waste of time to link a Mud Truck!!!!!!!! I built my 1-link on mine with rock crawling and Mud in mind but now I have the buggy for rocks and now I wish I would have not wasted the time/ money to do that to my K5. Put on some 44" and see a huge power differance.

Put track bars to help with axle wrap. If you don't want to the fendres, you can forget keeping the truck low. Linked or not.

I dont mind hacking up the fenders a little more. This is just an idea ive been throwing around for a little while. More or less just wanting to go one step further with the suspension. Plus, i 'd like to make it where i can throw some 44's on it so i can hit up some trails at shiloh.

put some 44"s for power gain and clearance, shackle flip in the rear, 56" springs in the front, zero rates, and get rid of the fenders. Alot cheaper, faster, more flex and much faster. Unless you are looking for ALOT more flex for rocks that's how I would do it.
