Re: missing links or 3/4 elip
the wishbone was to make it legal'. I set it up so that the wishbone was the same length from axle center to frame as the main leaves at static ride height, which helps pottn the carrier at the t-case when the suspension droops.
on-road it made a big difference, especially on cloverleafs, and on-ramps, where you can build up some lateral g-force. 0ff road, it doesnt effect the flex at all, but does give better control on side hills, and prevents axle wrap.
I'll see if I can dig you up a pic of the wishbone - the way I set it up, the wishbone simply had a 1" rod coming out the end of it, while the axle housing had a massive spherical rod end (heim joint), as did the frame ends of the wishbone.
