I started building a class 7 open and in the back I'm running or building a 3 link similar to the ats set up . Question On the mounting of the lower arm to the axle should it be 1] offset pivot point behind the axle 2] directly under or3] a bit in front of axle ? help me

Search for then read lower links 101. It will answer this question and many more.

I don't live on the edge. I fell over long ago.

if the coilovers are on the lowers, definately do *not* attach the heims directly in front of the axle. Mostly under, and slightly ahead, like 87 degrees to the perpindicular of the centerline of the axle is good becuase <if i am correct> it preloads the lwoers with just a little tension, but not nearly enough to cauase probs, just to keep everything vibration free. If you find the pics of that truck with completely bent Sway-A-Ways this makes sense.
