4-link rear LT Kit?

Does anyone make a 4-link rear long travel for our trucks that can use coil-over shocks as an alternative to spring under conversions?

That's a full custom fabrication job. Get on it and post up your progress.

Heh, I'm a looooong way from that. I am just curious to see if it's a viable option. Thanks, though.

Unlikely to ever see a kit for it as it requires too much fabrication. Full bed cage, custom shock hoops, 4-link mounts on both the frame and the axle, removal/relocation of the gas tank to clear the links, etc.

There's a guy on TTORA doing it on his own rig. This will give you an idea of what's involved.

I found another one: http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum...d.php?t=112125

Maybe I don't want to know how much that would cost to fab up.

No, all custom

Yes, it is viable if you have the skills or willing to pay someone who has the skills. There are a lot of calculations that go into a 4 link set up, everything has to be welded on very precise.

If you have to ask, you don't want to know
Actually in all honestly, if you do it by yourself. It wouldn't be too ridiculously expensive.
