Four link rear/URF three link front shakedown pics

Well, it's out.
Finally got a few pics of it in action.
First impressions:
Crawling places I'd barely powered through before.
Off camber much better with center limit strap.
The high AS actually seems to help as things get vertical.
Seems to keep the front end weighted better. Very little unloading.
Here are some pics:

Looks like you're giving WillBadger a run for his money in the flex department.

Turns?
You mean yours turns?
I use the "stop, drop, and roll" method of changing direction.

Rev
After a lot of grinding on the yokes and center section of the dbl carden joint I can get well over 30 degrees of DS angle before binding.
The center limit strap allows about half of that.

So the answer is:
definately hopefully.

Not that I had a choice in the matter.

Re: Four link rear/URF three link front shakedown pics

the rear seems way flexier than the front. is the front straped up that high or is it binding. are you running any sort of sway bar to limit body roll on the trail.

looks good

I've got the front strapped. The left is at the limit just before the DS hits the LCA mount. I could lower the right a little bit but both are out of spring by this point anyway. Only the axle weight would be on the ground which would be of little value traction wise.
