I have a 2001 taco and was wondering if a four link suspension would benefit me in everyday driving. I don't plan on bagging it anytime soon, if ever, but was just curious. I am more of a performance phreak, than a suspension tweeker. Thanx.
Yeah, I was wondering about 4-links too. I looked on the Belltech, Hotchkis, DJM, and AirRide sites but they didn't have the info I was looking for. Can you install 4-link without air bags? With simple lowering solutions like lowered leaf springs, does adding 4-link improve performance? Simple stuff like that. Perhaps e-mailing the tech dept. is the easiest way. hmmm...
You can find 4 links a Summit Racing. I can't remember for sure, but I think most of the pplications required some welding. They are best used for stiffining the chassis for better traction. You might look into bolt on traction bars as well.
Yes you can run a four link without bags. Drag race cars use them, and street rods use them. The four links summit sells are drag race-type. When you see them, the price looks low, until you see there are no ends. After pricing the ends, they are not so cheap. The type you want to use on your street driven trucks are the kind street rods use. Technically they are called four bars. Go to www.artmorrison.com
They sell both. You can compare the two and see the difference. I have four linked a couple tacomas . By using a either a parallel four bar, and by relocating the gas tank and using a triangulated four link. The parallel a is quicker install, but I prefer to use a triangulated.
