I have happend upon a nice place that I plan on getting my parts for my long arm suspension for my TJ. Lotsa stuff in there but I myself was looking at getting the 1/2" stanless steel spherical rod ends and 36" hex bar. They have good prices for higher quantities also.

I'd like to see how this goes together myself, since I want to do the custom long arm next year or possibly sooner if the money situation is right.

So your basically building a custom steel 4-link suspension? Sounds easy enough. I hope you can take alot of notes on your measurements so that if it turns out we can mass produce them for everyone.

I am thinking about doing the 4 link or might just stick with the 3 and keep it close to stock just longer. Be nice to get rid of that top side though. Only thing about the whole deal is I don't have a place to do it. Really miss having a garage now that I am renting. Might have to hit up PizzaJeep for some mounting points from RE. Prolly gonna get the resident engineer to help me out with the measurements (wifey).

I can help you with your link fabrication. I sell 4130 tube, rod ends , uniballs, flex joints and tube adaptors. I can help you choose the right stuff for your application. Just let me know. I will give you my two cents on design, although Mike S. really knows his stuff. Give me a call if you need anything.
