I don't know much about a z-link so can't help ya' there. But the 6-link that is made by D&M.... the top bar on the birdcage goes forward like a normal 4-link but the bottom bar runs to the back of the car at an up hill angle. Then there is another bar. It is a swingarm with the spring in the middle of it. It mounts to the bottom of the housing and runs forward. Its also mounted directly to the housing not a floated birdcage.

I've never had one, just seen them.

The 6-link has two bird cages on each side. One for the z-link and another for a swing arm. The swing arm has the slider mounted on it in front of the axle and the shock mounted behind.

Go to the menu and do a search on 6 link in the modified section. Look under the post "D&M 6-link????". Dirtracer14 posted a bunch of pictures of the 6 link suspension.

The 6 link is just what 49mt said. 2 cages one is a rev z link and the onther is just to float the spring and shock. It was a pretty good car i wish i never sold it( is there one for sale down that way). I know that i had tons of forward bite with it. Tell jason i said hello

What are the pros and cons of this suspension? I've tried zlink, 4bar, and 4bar/zlink. What kind of characteristics does the 6th link have?
