What is better 3 Link or 4 Link?
The 3 linl is easier to fit around engine/exhaust/etc… 4 link with dual triangulation done well will locate the axle without panhard rod but is sometimes a bear to fit the upper links and the frame end of lowers.
Do you need a track bar with 3 Link?
Having a steering gear box means you’ll want to use a 3 Link with Track Bar, having a hydraulic steering system means you’ll want to use a Triangulated 4 link. If you are running a steering gearbox a front track bar is an unavoidable necessity.
What is a 3 link suspension?
The 3-link is our race-proven, and streetable upgraded solid-axle rear suspension. It features adjustable pinion angle and improved handling over the 4-link rear suspension. It is used on the Mk4 Roadster, 289 USRRC Replica, Challenge Car, Type 65 Coupe, and ’33 Hot Rod.
Is 4-link suspension street legal?

Does panhard bar length matter?
During chassis roll a short panhard bar changes its angle, hence handling, more radically than a long panhard bar. Consequently, handling can become inconsistent if the panhard bar is too short (20″ minimum length is recommended).
Do you need a track bar with 4 link?
There is no need for a separate lateral locating device. Conversely, with a parallel style 4-link, all bars are parallel to each other and the vehicle centerline. A “Panhard bar” or other separate device is required to keep the axle centered.
What is a 4-link lift?
“Radius arms or 4-links are basically just the way the front diff or rear diff is held into the vehicle,” explains Naugle. Those arms help determine stability and control—and we don’t need to tell you how important those are out on the trail.
Do you need a sway bar with a 4 link?
A Panhard bar, or some other location device, is necessary when a parallel rear 4-link is used because the bars themselves don’t offer much resistance to left-right chassis movement. The triangulation of the bars resists the left-right movement when a triangulated rear 4-link is used so a Panhard bar is not required.
