THE 4-LINK REAR, PERFECTED

4 link rear

While the Radius Arm front was ideal, we realized the space in the rear allows for a properly engineered 4-Link.

Choosing the 4-link rear control arm design provides added torque strength support for the main drive axle and provides a fantastic overall ride quality.

Our design eliminated the typical unsteady "Long Arm Roll" felt on a lifted TJ while cornering - and that's without running a rear sway bar!


Upper Arms Use Custom Brackets to Mount.
