View Full Version : cheap links and wheelbase?

03-08-2006, 11:30 PM
I'm planing on linking my zuk, this is not the first time I've been over this a few times but I think I got a setup that would work well
I'm going to do a triangulated 3 link.
for the top link I will use these bushings for the top Y link http://www.spidertrax.com/s.nl/it.A/id.1209/.f
and on the axle side of the upper link I was going to use something like this so it can move freely http://www.zukikrawlers.com/albums/zuknstien/3linkshackle.jpg
the lower links will be jonny joints at the frame and those bushings at the axle.

Im shooting for a 92" wheelbase so I can run dualcases.

anyone have any suggestions?

I bought those same bushing kits from Spidertrax before. The bushings dont fit the sleeve tight at all. I ended up sending them all back and got my money back.
Just buy a bushing kit for a jeep wrangler YJ and goto the steel yard and get the pipe that fits the bushings.

thats a very rough chop of what I plan on doing to the rear section of my zuk also moved the axle back a little in that pic as well.
