Re: homemade z-link
when you make the new link, make sure you keep the overall distance the same. on the lower section of the link give it at least 12 in. so it does not hit the spring on a hard twisted up right turn.i just lay the link on a steel welding table mark the overall distance. then i cut the link in 3 pieces the lower one about 12.5 in. the top one about 8 in.,then lay them back on the table with the amount of lift you have. then take your mesurements for your drop section i have some tubing that just slips over the stock solid shafts. i make the center section in. longer on both ends then i cut the center section 4 in. from each end with a v notch so i can bend the ends to match the drop needed. then i drill  1/2 holes in the ends of the center section for plug welds.then i weld up the ends and the notches. next build the gussets for the drop sectins do not go to big on the lower gusset. hope this helps i have built four ,havent had a problem.good luck mike
