3-link fabrication

I have a welder ready to make up some 3-links. I might do a short run of 4 to 6. Who might be interested in buying one? I know price will be the main concern and I should be able to quote some prices this week once I hear back from him. I'm not looking to make money on them either, just looking to help out eager 3-link owners who could not get one in the past.

Not trying to be a bummer but I think that's a huge liability you are taking on. Talking to Alan Dobbs he was telling me that SG was having issues with that as well back in the day. If anything happens this is an integral part of the truck holding on the entire front end and you designed and built it...well do the math.

Rough estimates would be around $1000 for the 3-link, crossmember and all the hardware + shipping. You provide radius arm bushings yourself because you might want to reuse your old ones, or can get new ones for dirt cheap.

There could be a price break to all if I can get 12 people on board that want them. I don't know how much of a price break, but i know steel would be cheaper, and a bigger order of hardware on my end would mean a bit of a price drop for you too.

Why not just buy one from SG for less money.

I paid over $1000 for mine for the last 2 years. First it cost me around $950. I then had to pay them again for each additional package that they would ship. I had to pay $60 in shipping (ontop of the original shipping cost) to get the rest of the 3-link and one control arm in. Then had to pay again for 2 more things to be shipped. Oh yeah... Its still not all here and its going on 2009. I don't think anyone would trust them, but If you do then anyone is more than welcome to buy one from SG.

I want to do a run of 12. If you are in, PM me for info and I will get you the details and pricing.
