Exactly whom was David "representing", as you put it?

Oh carp, here goes John Lee again.

Follow-up Post:

David, did you say 3-link??? Welcome to the dark side, but becarefull b/c your D90 will become a trailer queen

The A-arm extension should work but do not go over 1.5" other wise the diff will hit the skid.

"I figured so much, my plan was to also add a 3-link so as to correct the front pinon and castor". Dave this statement is ok if you plan on running a stock fr drive shaft. Because the center link can be extended to keep pinion and output on TC in parallel. If you plan on a DC drive shaft you ideally want the pinion in line with driveshaft. In this case the centerlink is shortened to rotate pinion up, but the castor will suffer. I have a SG 3link on my truck. I experimented with rotating pinion in parallel with TC and a stock drive line. This didnt work because the drive shaft rubbed on the heavy duty cross member. So I rotated the diff up in line with shaft and use a double cardan shaft. I dont have redrilled swivels, and caster is way off. I said earlier that the SG 3link will not work with redrilled swivels. There is no room inside the SG tie rod box for the tie rod to be lowered with the redrill process on the swivels. You could fab your own 3link like on Johnathan Tisdales 9inch. That way you could run a HD bent tie rod that is tucked away. If you are going 3link dont waist money on caster corrected control arms. Anyway take a good look at a SG 3link and it will make sense.

I agree with JP. You can not have your balls redrilled and the 3 link... It just wont work. My 3 link is set up with a dc front shaft and i actually have it lowered about 3 degrees lower then the d shaft with no problem. THe steering is great and when I took it to the front end shop, they put it on the rack and he said the caster was not bad at all. I have the specs of what it was somewhere

True, I didn't think about the re-drileld swivels with the 3-link because I haven't gone the route of a 3-link.....yet..ahem.

Randy, that's interesting the way that you have it set up there with no problems. I think you got lucky though (no offense and I wish mine were like that), but on our Red D90, it has just a 2" lift and you can feel a difference from the castor being off. It wanders when it's at higher speeds. I think most (maybe not all) lifts would suffer from this wandering to some extent or another.

As for the a-arm extension hitting the gas tank, generally all you have to do is lop off one of the corners about 1/2" and it'll clear the stock gas tank. This is only an issue with the d90's, not the disco's, maybe that's why Rovertym didn't mention it.

Yeah, mine is great. with the 3 link. I think its a great system especially with its adjustability. I was able to adjust the pinion angle lower so it is almost stock but not low enough to start getting vibs from the DC drive shaft. Its all good even at 70mph.

David, here is the set up you want to run. Fox 12" coil overs on all four corners, 3-link, anti-rock in the rear, b/c you know SW's are street queens and the only way you can make them happy is run a sway bar in the back b/c they like to take it in the back You will have a fully adjustable suspension and fox shocks are for life. The only bad part about running coil overs is you have to cut the front upper spring mounts and the rear upper spring mounts if you want to run them vertical, and yes 12" in the will fit on top of the axle. Give it a shot and you can thank me later. I guess Pendy can do the tube bending and welding assuming he know how to do this stuff
