I am just trying to learn for my next truck - with the 4 link systems, what are the drawbacks (besides cost)? Are there any situations where the softer spring rates create bounce, or is this the role of a quality shock absorber to deal with that? I use my trucks for work - pulling and hauling, but do like lifts in the range of 5" - 6" with 37's... I cant compromise functionality too much, but like the look!
I am kind of old school in where I am at - usually front coil springs changed or spacers added, radius arm drops / caster cams for alignment to get steering back. I have always been of the 'old way' of thinking that I hoped the truck wouldnt ride / steer crappier than stock. However, newer technology appears to have ride improvment as a benefit (that I havent experienced yet) - hoping to on my next one!!!
And then for back - I see big blocks / traction bars, complete new springs, and some combinatioins of a block and something like an auxilary spring pack (is that what Deavers are??) - whats the best way to go to complement a 4 link front (but the truck has to not cry 'MOMMY' with some serious tongue weight.)...
