Positives and Negatives to both?

hey all,
i am wondering on what you would prefer on your suspension, 4 link or radius arm?, i would mainly be doing driving around town, a little towing during the summer, and mild trail/off road......what do you all think would be the best for me and what do you think are the positives and negatives for 4 links and radius arm set ups?
thanks

I've heard anything over a 2" lift you should really go for the 4 link. I'm not sure what lift your looking at but if your going to do it, go all the way, you will be thankful later on.

Here is some more info on the truck, it is a truck that I am looking at and it already has a procomp 8 inch lift with the beefy radius arms and I was wondering whether or not to change it and go with a four link style lift....thanks

It depends greatly on the design (brand) of 4-link....some are great, some aren't really an improvement over a radius arm.


Another very good option is the One up Offroad Adjustable Link Arms which work very well.

alright, thanks a lot for the info, i think that i will probably just stick with the radius arms since they are already on it, it is not worth it to swap the suspension out with a 4 link one, i will look into the ouo links too though thanks
