That's a bad looking rig. I like it. What kind of deal did you find on the 3 link?

I'm going to use the stock axles for now. I have 60s for it but it will be awhile to build them. Wifey is only letting me buy this for now.

I should have talked to these fools at KOH because that 3 link is the cat's pajamas. I'm just trying to stick to the order I want to do things in, and stiffening the frame comes first in my book.

Wow.... looks like a bug has hit a bunch of us.

How much are the air shocks and why are you doing them vs coilovers or struts?

This is good shit..... tell your woman I approved the one ton axle upgrade! If she says no, I'll let her look at... even touch, mine. It's so nice, she might cream her shorts. WAF is that close! :thefinger:

What do you like about a three link more than let's say a double tringulated four link?

Nice... about half of what I paid for the struts. Whne you add the bump cans and sway bars.... what does each corner come to?

Think about those numbers... the struts might be inline cost wise, but a better option for sure!

Brad's here to turn everyone to ORI's. They are a pretty sweet deal actually. Perhaps if you look hard enough you can find some used.

Don't really want to buy anything used cause you never know how it was treated and how long it will last before replacing it.

I'll give you my real opinion in a few months.... let me get some miles on mine.

But.... everything I read, hear, and see... they are the hot ticket!

ORI's can be rebuilt just like any other high end shock. I'd definitely try to save money where you can on this big of a build.

Procomp has 4" travel air bumps that come with the weld on mount like $178 or so a piece thats the direction I am going.

This is my first major build. So after 4 linking it and getting the right travel with the air shocks than I'll get the correct measurements for the air bumps and sway bar. Any opinions are appreciated though
