I am trying to setup a 4 link rear and have been running numbers on my setup, what kind of roll center, and antisquat are you guys having on your setups??

Well from the infamous 4-link calculator, I'm running -106.65% anti-squat and a roll center of 18.46" but I don't think I entered the numbers right.......

I don't have any complaints from it and it is very predictable.

Lookign for some input on my 4 link numbers. Pretty sure after abotu 2 hours of measuring and stuff I know what I can make work.

Anti squat 112%
Roll Center Height 21 in
Roll Axis Angle 11 degrees (Roll Oversteer)
Instant Center X-Axis 68 in
Instant Center Z-Axis 29 in

By making my upper link adjustable at the axle I can get to these numbers (1 inch lower)

Anti-Squat 94 %
Roll Center Height 19 in
Roll Axis Angle 11 degrees (Roll Oversteer)
Instant Center X-Axis 98 in
Instant Center Z-Axis 35 in

1 inch higher

Anti-Squat 123 %
Roll Center Height 23 in
Roll Axis Angle 11 degrees (Roll Oversteer)
Instant Center X-Axis 58 in
Instant Center Z-Axis 27 in



Any input is appreciated

if you can triangulate ur lowers a bit more to try to get the roll axis flat
will be better

and try to keep ur AS under 100

been doing lots and lots of measuring, figuring and running number on calculators. I have found a way(by calculator) to get anti squat at 101% with a 0 degree roll axis angle , roll center height of 22". After measuring again it looks like the layout i calculated will fit and work out on the frame. My only question is link length. does anyone see a problem with 48" long lowers, 39" uppers?? This is on a 96" wheelbase and having a 31" driveshaft .

the only problem I see is that there gunna hang up on everything

and unless they are super beefy will bend

i got my lowers down to 37"
and my roll axis is actually a little lower on the front ( better for road handleing)

although i run my lower links ontop of the rear housing so its easier to get the roll axis flatter

Correction on mine, I was off an inch on my measurement.

Here are my #'s

AS = -43.03%
Roll Axis Slope= 0.21in
Roll Axis Center Height= 19.60in
Roll Axis Angle= 11.87 degrees
