    American Motorsports 4 link kit. The American Motorsports 4 link kit comes with 2 trailing arms, 2 upper links, 2 upper link mounts, 2 lower link mounts and all hardware including heims, bolts, washers and nuts. . The trailing arms were drawn in solidworks after a prototype was made. Then the trailing arms are water jet and then fixture welded for tight tolerances. The arms can be mig/tig welded. Each trailing arm is 55 inches long. Trailing arms can be made in different lengths*****

    Here are the American Motorsports 4-link kit on a 06 Toyota Tacoma 5 lug. Yes a 5 lug!!! The factory bed is bolted into place and only 6 holes drilled through the bed. Allowing at least 75% of your bed free. Fiberglass bolted on and a working tail gate!!!

    Wheel Travel 30.5 inches

    Great work. You guys should consider a reverse 4 link kit to keep the stock gas tank

    That looks awesome:thumbsup:

    Not worried about the links getting hit or anything? They just seem to hang low :cool:

    Also, will the truck be getting the American Motorsports 2nd Gen 5-Lug kit when completed as well?

    Amazing work, Brian. :thumbsup:

    I don't think Donovan is getting the front LT kit, but instead some American Motorsports spindles if I recall correctly.

    Haha, I wish! First thing's first is the front AMS kit. I have the rear TC dual 2.0 kit in my garage. I would really like to keep the bed since I use my Sportz Truck Tent when I go camping.

    Looks like a nice setup! Any plans to incorporate a bypass shock mount into the lower links?

    Unrelated -- I met the Homemade Motorsports guys at SCORE Primm in 2009 and 2010. Great group of guys!

    The bypass mounts are on the links and the upper shock mounts already. It's kind of hard dropping 3000 grand on 4 shocks so the customer will be them at a later date.
