    Two Link Suspension Questions


    I am thinking about running a 2 link suspension from a late 60's to early 70's Chevy truck. What are the pros and cons of a setup like this?

    The car will only weight about 2200 lbs when finished. Engine is a stock 230cid straight six with a powerglide so there is not alot of torque. Rearend is a 9" Ford with a 3.25 gear.

    The radius arms will be mounted solid to the rear axle with a panhard bar to center it and setting on coils. The front of the arms will be at an angle in the front toward the center of the chassis, similar to a wishbone setup but not as close.

    I have been told not to run the radius arms in a straight angle/line off the rear end like ladder bars for this would not allow for articulation.

    How much articulation will be needed in the rearend and will this setup supply what is needed.

    Any pictures of this kind of set up and suggesting would be appreciated.

    Thanks and God bless
