I am putting a 4-link on my left rear,and I need to know if I should run the links angled inward or out.On my two-link I had the left rear trailing arm angling in.

The links on the rear should be parallel to the frame, not angled in or out. Angleing the bars causes more rear steer and possable bind in the rear, not to mention the links are not desighned to be put in load in two directions. With the rear sitting at ride height the bars should be straight.

straight or toed in a just a little. Keep in mind that as teh car rolls over the axle will move left some and will put more 'toe in'angle in the left side.

mine are slightly toed out on the lr, so that way when the car hikes up a small amount it will be in line.

mine are straight on the left, in on the right, at ride height.
