4BT Chevy 1ton 4x4 4-link bagged X 4 Project
Hello everyone I'm Ryan and have been a member for only a month or so. I have been looking at everyones buildups and am impressed with the amount of inginuity that I see. I thought I'd start a thread on my project to keep track of it and hopefully avoid as many costly mistakes as possible.
here is what I started with.
My thinking of how to do triangulated 4-link in the rear.
The lower bars will run from the front of the axle to the bottom of the plywood(3/8 plate) outside of it.
The top bars will run from a truss to the inside of the framerail.
pivot points will be on a vertical plane from one another, and the top bars will be parallel to the lowers.
The lowers should be level at ride hieght.
Well I've come a long way. starting with putting off the original truck for a while. I now have a 85 1ton chevy cab-chassis truck 4x4 with a 10' flatbed (soon to be dumpbed). I started her up yesterday and wow talk about torque. Its snappy. and the sound puts a smile on my face every time i hear it. so...
also look at my other videos for the initial startup.
