Id like to see pictures of new body style silverados with 4 links or wishbone 3 links. Im a bit stuck on figuring out how to run the factory gas tank, yet still have good triangluation on the links... Doesnt need to be your truck... just looking for pics to study up before i order link bars. Thanks guys

Bingo.. tfunit nailed it. I hate my 2 link and am in the process of redoing the rear setup. I was set on doing a kp6link... but ive been talked out of it from a few wise people and ive being tryin to decide what to do. I think a wishbone is my best bet to keep to factory gas tank.. just wanted to see some pictures of how others have done it. thanks guys

that doesnt look like it would be too hard for me and my dad to do to my truck. how would you know where to put the trailing arms and the wishbone etc?

Whats wong with the KP 6 Link? Is it price? If so I understand you canmake your own for cheaper. However I have had the KP for 2+ years without a single problem.

All those look great. The only problem im running into is the factory gas tank. i really, really dont want to switch to a fuel cell.

tonight after work i tacked the axle up using 2 ubolts welded to the frame. did this so i will be able to set my pinion angle perfectly. after the axle was good and secured i took off the old links, shocks, and did some more cleaning!!!

Its all down to measurements now. i plan on running the wishbone offset to the passanger side just a few inches. Using a superpivot bushing on the single side and two polys on the other.

In all your expert opinions..... Single mount forward to the frame or backward to the axle?? ive heard so many people say different answers. in the long run does it really change that much??

I don't know from experience but from what all I've heard it doesn't really matter. I would say do what your space will allow for
