i believe most of that applies to the rear suspension so when you hit the gas the dog dont drag its ass on the carpet....

i mainly went with a triangulated lower/parallel upper because of clearances around the front cross-member and oil pan at full compression. and i won't have to make as large of a sub frame and sacrifice ground clearance.

just go with me on this lol

oh i trust you.

just from what you have setup i knew it wasnt triangulated upper and lower. which is fine for a street truck with mechanical steering. actually a straight parrallel 4 link would probably work fine for what you are doing, but you would get some roll, I think it will work out fine the way you have it

ive seen plenty of trucks back in colorado that are running this same setup to keep the center of gravity lower (lower ride height). they didnt have too bad of bump steer, and they still had pretty damn good amount of articulation... it'll be fine for what i use the truck for.

with the completely worn upper and lower ball joints, radius arm bushings, and axle pivot bushings, i already have severe bump steer, even get the death wobble at certain speeds if i hit any bumps

bump steer shouldnt be a problem as long as your running a trac-bar

sure you can, you just have to minimize the degree of trianglalation. You probably couldnt go anymore than 13*

havent been able to order any parts lately, like everyone else im broke as hell, but since i now work nights, i have a lot of time on my hands during the day, decided to jump in and start working on the rear end since all i have to do is swap axles...

well i pulled the diff cover off the axle and found the oil to be a nice brown, not black and not yellow, right in between. frist thing i noticed though was its an open diff! even though the guy stated it was a LS... guess i should have checked before... didnt find any metal shavings and stuck my hand back in the nooks and crannies and found just a smidgen of sludge (way deep in the crannies)

but yeah, atleast ill have 4.56's and new brakes! my rear brakes have been loooong over due, and 3.55 with 35's suck!

but yeah thats basically what ive been upto...
