3 link

Any interest in a 3 link if I had some copies made up? Not sure of the cost yet - let's say $900? for a kit?

Clay - I am definitely interested. If this is anything like the brake light bar I can't go wrong. The only thing that might hold me back is the other changes I am going to have to make to the suspension to get this to work.

If someone could design a "universal" 3 link for V8s and Tdi's, I'd be interested.

Tried that... you need to have a different x-member for each engine variant, other than that... rest is the same.

crossmember

I have 2 crossmembers as copies, one goes over the Y pipe like the traditional crossmember and the other goes under the Y pipe. Both of the crossmembers are designed for a V8.

I am not versed enough to know if the placement of the crossmember on the frame is different in a tdi vs a V8...meaning if it is affixes more forward or aft of where the v8 mounts to on the frame.
