Oh boy I found the right thread to chime in on,

If you plan on running a steering box, then stay with the 3 Link and panhard bar. Trust me you need too.

If you are going full hydro Then go ahead with the triangulated 4 Link

Radius arms. Unlike the 3 link or 4 link, radius arms are when the upper link connects to the lower link rather than the frame.

Both sides have the upper, and you do still have a panhard bar.

why would i need to stay away from a 3link front and a steering box? or are you talking about just going to hydro assist?

Because of questions like this I've written a very large suspension article with 4WDTO, so keep your susbscriptions current it will be out in 3 months. It will hopefully help people out like many on here that dont understand why or what suspension and steering combo's to run, it will also cover stuff like building your suspension for a purpose. ( if you want a DD then do this) sort of thing. Currently I've build three front 3links and 2 rear 4links, haven tested them both on and offroad I've learned alot about certain traits of the different designs combined that with lots of reading and tons of questions to those that have built more than I have and engineering guru's and hopefully it will be something like a linked suspension for dummies. So if you can wait then cool. If not best of luck to ya's.
