I have a 3 link setup, was wondering if anyone hastried putting a mount on top of rear for a 4link bar, [it would act like a clamped 4link]. This would be on left and the right would remain 3link [1lower bar]. Does this work well on dry slick? Also could you get rid of 3rd linkwith this setup or do you have to leave it on?

Also we were going to try alot of angle on the top bar to get the left rear to bite harder, has anyone ever tried this,will it work?

Has anyone tried this? Dont want to waste time making brackets if it won't work.

I have the mounts to do just that but never tryed it this past season. With the current setup i have i have more than enough bite and can put a lot into if i ever need it but the problem i had all year was the car being too tight/ hooked up very hard and all i did was break engines. Only turning the engine about 6600 and lugging it with the car hooked hard all 3 engines i broke a rod and or a piston and the last one i bent a rod and cracked a block. It isnt always the type of suspension you have but whats the most important is the lengths and angle which the trailing arms are set at and what the frame brackets are indexed at among a few things.

I run a 3 link with a 600lb afco spring bar with a short j bar with long lower trailing arms.
