This is the most popular version of our Front 3 Link kit for the guy who wants to do it himself. The kit is called 3 link (but is technically a 4 link when you include the trac bar) because it uses only 3 control arms.
We have pulled together all top notch parts and figured out all the mounting points for proper geometry to make your rig a top notch crawler with awesome articulation and a balanced feel.
Simply put, if you were building a rock buggy this is the type of suspension you would put on it - it is that good!
This front kit is also perfect for moving the front axle forward to accommodate bigger tires and longer wheel travel. It can also help you achieve the Magic 100" + wheelbase (when used in combination with the rear kit we offer, which uses our EXT or COMP gas tanks, to move the rear axle back, also) to improve your rigs departure angle. For those guys converting from leafs, better approach angle, no axle wrap, smooth non binding articulation and better steering geometry (to eliminate bump steer).
Front 3 Link Kit Features:
Single upper control arm allows the installer more flexibility to locate the upper control arm in the best location for the engine & trans in the vehicle and allow for a lower overall ride height (or more up travel).
Having only 3 Links allows for a smooth, non-binding INSANE amount of articulation.
Yes, this system does require a front trac bar, that is included.
The mounts are universal and can be cut or trimmed to be mounted in any position on your vehicle.
Control arm mounts (on the frame side) DO NOT tie into the Transfer case skid plate, unlike others.
Can be used with 12" to 14" travel shocks OR for tires bigger than 40", 16" travel shocks with full hydraulic steering (not for street use!).
Greasable & Rebuildable Currie Johnny Joints throughout the kit are tough and quiet.
The Kit Includes:
The trac bar bracket in this kit is designed to work with hi-steering (STK-8625).
Cutting & Welding is required: This kit requires cutting the tubing to length (tailoring it to your specific vehicle) and welding the threaded inserts onto the end of the Tie Rod.
Once this kit is installed, you MUST cycle the front suspension and steering (in all possible direction combinations) to make sure the ball joints or heims DO NOT exceed their range of motion which would damage the steering components and could cause a failure resulting in a loss of steering control!
