I did a search and could not find any info, so sorry if this has been talked about already.

I am doing a big custom job on a ranger, and would like to design (and build) a multi-link rear suspension. The only books I can find are for lowered street cars. I know the concept is the same as as a street application, but I would like to read up on a lifted application.
I have heard of kits out there, but I don't have $5k for a rear KIT!

Some guys at offroadrangers.com sent me over here. Thanks fo your help!

How much are you charging for it? That is a big decipher if it's worth doing.

This is most likely going to be a one off.
Yes it would be worth it. I would be doing all of the work. And sence it is my truck, I don't mind spending 50 hrs getting it right (hopefully the first time)

For some nice reference pictures check out the Skunkz section on this site...especially H&M & truck and Stewarts Truggy.
Here is a site with a lot of info on coilovers, heim ends, limit straps, tubing etc. It is mainly a 'Crawler site, but they have lots of info:

Do you have a web site for newline?
Can you make a custom multi-link?
If you don't have a web site, can you post a price or pm me a price list.
Thanks ----------------------RJ

RJ,

The Newline site is being designed right now.
My Ranger is at Newline right now being finished, and I will send you some pics after I pick it up this week.
