From what I have seen, the 4 link and 2 link require different settings, I like to put the two link springs like this LR in front of rear, RR behind. Loads the cross, will bite hard.

The latemodel setups with a 4 link, from what we have talked about in here, a lot of people are putting them behind the rear. They index differently, so as you can see, different suspensions, different requirements.

Tires will play a huge roll also.

On our late model we run LR behind and we also do this with our limited late. Seems to work pretty good for us. Helps get bite.
