I am looking for a truck to buy and would like to know what the pro's and con's are on the 3-link and the 4-link, is one stronger than the other, does one have more travel, and which one is cheaper?

do a search......plenty of info out there. The short answer is 4 link, but when you read the other threads you will see how opinionated others are.

There isn't a ton of difference between a 3-link and a 4-link, but there are different ways to build each so the amount of difference between the two can also vary quite a bit.

. . .short story is that a properly designed and set-up double triangulated 4-link should be stronger and bind less than a 3-link of the same quality. If you don't have a triangulated 4-link then the 3-link is superior as far as articulation is concerned.


. . .like I said, short story. . .very short version of it.
