The top links work the opposite on a zlink. When you lower the top link on a zlink, it has the same affect as if you raised the top link on a four bar. Zlinks just take same roll sterr out of the car. Alot of guys like running a longer left upper to get some foward movement out of the left side of the axle. Alot of guys dont like the fifth arm with the zlink or swingarm. Most prefer a pull bar. Cant tell ya way tho, but have been told its due to the way the axle moves.
Hope this helps.
