Remember that on the Center link there is 6 times more force applied to that arm than a standard radius arm sees.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

I agree with David, I bet you will have to change that link. With all that force I think the bushing will wear and you will get alot of play very quickly and the fron end will be knocking back and forth and making it very sketchy at the wheel.
Other then that, It looks great.

Will see how it goes, if I need to then it's not a big job to fabricate a new x-member mounting and get a link made up. Will prob go for one with rose joint ends if I do have to. At the end of the day it's all good fun and what I like about Landy's. There big toys to be messed with.....

Cheers,
Andy

Thats all fine and good but when these things go it's not like a broken half shaft. It breaks, your front end moves, your truck follows. I would think hard about building it right the first time.

I'm building a 3 link too. I find it sadly humorous that the basic question asked by Andy was never answered. Everyone wants to put in thier two cents worth and the subject goes off on some awkward tangent. My center link is being built using poly bush 1" rod ends (3/4" bolt hole) and 2" DOM .25" wall tubing. That should be sufficent for any loads placed on it including a head-on collision. The drawings of the brackets were the very tihng I've been looking for. Thanks, Andy!!!
