Yea it's not worth your life when the front axle falls out from under the truck going down the highway. Trust me. Been there, done that.
pete just axe the idea of SASing your truck...youd be better off just fixing the problems and driving it
I'm gonna give it a little research fellas. I appreciate the concern, but my buddy did it already on a friend's blazer, so he already knows what it consists of. I'll take a look at all the costs, what work it consists of, and what everybody else's problems and successes were. Def gonna look deep into it this time before I jump into it.
When I talked to JD about an SAS Kit for the 01-03, I was told that all of the pieces are sold separately on there site and I would have to put the parts together that worked.
I asked if the parts were called out by year and they said you would have to figure out how to mount them.
So the last question to them was will there be a kit for the 03, anytime soon… and as stated before nothing now but we were thinking about it.
I have e-mailed them a few time since and nothing is up an coming although there was a statement I jumped at, they said the needed a truck to work with, I volunteered but haven’t heard anything.
That would be awesome if they came out with a kit for it. Definitely let me know!
Brad, you know a lot more than anyone on hear about this topic so quick question .. I want to solid the mamba eventually with leafs, it looks wayyyyyyy Easyer and u still get to wheel it lol.. What do you think ?? ...
Oh and guys I have seen brads handy work first hand , he knows what he's doing
It's not that much additional money to do a basic 3-link. Add to it that you're very close to running coil-overs, I vote link the b!tch. It's what I'll be doing when the time comes. F-leafs. While it seems way cheaper and easier in the beginning, you're damn lucky to be able to run high-steer to eliminate bump steer. Typically, leaf guys need to run a panhard.......and leaf setups shouldn't require a panhard. And coils tend to ride better than leafs anyway. Not to mention the infinite adjustability with heims on the axle end of the links.
I too am looking at a Linked suspension, only way to go to get both the ride and the performance.
What is the difference between the three and four links other than the number of rods ?
