Well since Im a begginer (this is my first bagged truck) I dont want to fuck anything up. And hey I just learned somthing new from Dava Flav, He said "dont do it to get more lift because thats whats gonna cause problems on a 2 link.
do it to have a better ride quality than boa.
on a 2 link you should only use about 4 inches of your travel to keep the driveline in check while your driving. ive seen driveshafts pull out from retards breaking shocks. and over extending the bars" I didn't know this.

a properly set up 2 link has a small operating range while driving like dava said simply for the fact, like its name, it has 2 links. the more the bags lift, the more it turns the axle. the more likely damage will be done.

Good to know man, is there anything you can do to keep the drive shaft from coming out? I only want more lift because the truck wont untuck the 22" in the rear and I want to get the same height as the front not any more than that. so if I just jack up the rear of the truck to the height that I want and as long as the drive shaft don't come out im good right?:hmm:

What year model truck are you wanting to do the 2 link on? I can probably give you all kinds of measurements to help you do it yourself. Like stated above, a 2 link has usable operating range, set the pinion at your average and most consistent ride height, which on almost any truck realistically speaking is 3-4 inches. Set the truck level front to back set your pinion. Honestly you wil rarely operate over that ride height. If the bags are postioned properly and the shocks are installed correctly, you should get minimal squat and lunge.

i would find out how much lift it takes to make you untuck happily and find the center of that height and set your pinion at than height thats gonna get you the least amount of change up and down from that height and use shocks or limiting straps to limit your lift so you dont screw anything up. i would use chain or straps because shocks can break. and you dont want your d line pulling out while driving its a aweful mess

The only thing i see wrong with you plan davaflav, is that he probably wont be riding around untucked. I think his main concern is being able to change a flat tire. Other than that davaflave and I are saying the same thing...just different heights lol
