I am going to a 4-link left,two link right and I am trying to find how much clearance I need between the front of driveshaft yoke and rear of tranny.I have heard anywhere from 2" to 4" so I am lost.I ran two link both sides before and had
1 1/2".

adjust the links all the way to the top holes on the frame mounts so they are at max angle and let the diff droop to maximum (as far as the diff will droop on the left during race conditions, and a couple inches on the right if you can set a limiter on the right). make the driveshaft so it is about 1/4" from bottoming in the tranny at maximum droop, this is the furthest forward the diff will swing.

Make sure you have the long yoke or whatever you call it that goes in the transmission so you don't pull the driveshaft out
