I'm going to switch my 3-link over to either a 4 bar or 4bar Z-link what is better and why. I had a z-link both side before I had my 3-link. I've been told that a 4 bar is harder to drive in traffic and 4 bar Z-link is like drive a 3 link. Any truth to this. I've seen alot of 4bar push out towards the wall coming off the corners where a 4bar z-link will act more like a 3 link coming off but with just more forward bit. I need some opioions. Dirtworks also says it will be around 400.00 if I do the work my self to swtich it over to either.

My experience is that it tightened the car up going in by changing to a Z link on the RR.
When on a 4 bar on both sides, the car really felt like it wanted to come around going in to the corner, so I really had to let out of the throttle early just so I could handle the car through the corner. Try the Z link on the RR and let me know what you think.

why not put in mounts for both, then all you have to do is flip the bar over and run either one? that would not be hard to do, then try them for yourself. its a driver preference thing, but a z link will make you looser off the corner than a 4 link.
