10 degree brackets for a 3 link
« on: Oct 16, 2012, 07:23:58 PM »
Ok now let me start by saying I have been looking into linking my toy for a long time now, so I have done my research. So moving on. I got a Barnes 4x4 universal 3 link kit for my birthday. I plan on using this on the rear of my crawler. Now it came with 10 degree bracket but I have never seen a 3 link with anything besides straight links. Please enlighten me on the reasoning here.

No reason to if you're not going to triangulate the lowers at the frame. The toy axle isnt really wide enough to justify using different bracket there. Even with a small amount of misalignment youll have plenty of room in the joints to soak up the twist.

I will be doing a 3 link with a panhard. Ya I was looking at it and with the length of my links I knew there was no way of getting 10 degree's out of it anyways. Looks like I will be doing some mods to the brakets then. Thanks for the reply I was just making sure I wasn't missing something here.
