A dual triangulated 4 link setup is awesome. It has tons of advantages and many disadvantages that just require lots of research to get over. There are tons of geometry issues involved with setting up a proper 4 link kit. In my opinion, if you aren't in for all the extra leg work of figuring out what happens when you move this mount here I'd really suggest a weld on kit from someone like poly.

They have a complete weld on kit for a rear 4 link upgrade. And in my opinion it is great! Check it out here.

This is not a dual triangulated kit. It uses triangulated uppers to ditch the rear track bar. And I hate track bars with a passion so that makes this kit great!

If you are saying the axle you want to stuff under your rig already has brackets welded to it and you want to make it work for your jeep then you are getting into more of a tricky spot. If so, can I see pics of that axle? I will be better equipped then to tell you your options.

I'm really impressed with the stuff Poly is putting out right now. There link kits and their new TJ Cage setup is top notch.

MoA, Can you find out or determine what kind of 4 link the 44 is setup for? RK, RE, Clayton etc..... Or if it's setup for a custom or home built setup. If we know that then we can help determine what the geometry that Clifford is talking about means for you.

I know. I'm still trying to figure out which one is actually producing the product.

Ahhh lets see Poly in the past has only made bushings made of plastics of some type.
Gen Right has always dealt with metal.
The kit is mostly metal.......... I wonder which company built the kit??????
