CUSTOM LINK SUSPENSION SCIENCE
Q I’m working on building a custom three-link front suspension for my very custom ’48 Willys CJ-2A. The tub is stretched and it’s on a custom frame. I mainly use it for trail riding and rock crawling, but I do drive it to and from the trails so road manners are important. The tires are 39s but I may go bigger. My axles are Dana 60s and I will be using 12-inch-travel shocks. Are there any hard and fast rules to follow when considering link suspension geometry? I’ve done a ton of reading on the subject, but it’s honestly all a little overwhelming.
