Re: 3 and 4 Link Rear Suspension Question

3 and 4 link suspension consists of links(tubing with bushing mounts at the frame, and heim joint mounts at the axle. They locate the axle and control the arc through its range of travel. The suspension action comes from big dollar coil over shocks.

Diff between the two are the link points on the top.
