1BLKJP hey Goat, I'm diggin what TNT is doin with those outboard shock mounts. Are they planning on doing anything for a rear coilover setup on TJ's?

Also Nicolas, I thought you just got adjustable lowers with your lift?

Redrubicon2004 Polyperformance.com has a similar rear shock mount kit.

silvergoat Yes the frame must be notched.
11-23-2007 09:59 PM
nicolas-eric did you have to cut the frames for installing these shock mounts?
11-23-2007 09:57 PM
silvergoat Shock mounts are from TnT customs, but the products are not on the web site yet so you will have to call for info.

nicolas-eric wow, nice pic.
adj. lower CAs and the 3-link. that looks like a good combination.

could you please tell me how you mounted your rear shocks? can you use longer shocks on that way? my shocks are behind the frame on the stock mounts...

You do not need drop brackets but adjustable lower control arms would help dial everything in. heres mine with no drop brackets any more flex with a short arm and you will start running in to driveline problems.

rob5059MOD If you go with the Full Traction SA tri link you will need to modify your exhaust. I got the Spin Tech muffler #6222 for $70.00 shipped, and had a muffler shop modify the exhaust for $80.00. They cut the stock muffler off at the CAT and welder the new muffler at a slight angle. They cut the exhaust pipe above the rear axle where it is flat. Then they bent up a new pipe to clear the tri link. I also had them move the tail pipe closer to the frame.

Redrubicon2004 I have run the FT 3 link short arm kit and the LA kit on my jeep. Both performed great. The truss is totally bolt on, you dont even need to grind anything.

The FT exhaust will not work with the short arm 3 link kit. Besides the FT exhaust kit includes alot of pipe that you wouldnt need anyway. It would be a waste for the short arm kit. The muffler that comes with the FT kit sounds awesome on a jeep though. Its made by a company called Spin Tech. If you do the converson, make sure you get a small muffler, it will make the new exhaust install easier. You will have to have an exhaust shop custom bend a pipe to go over the axle.


Here are some pics of the exhaust that I had bent for the short arm 3 link kit. The muffler is a magnaflow.



If your lookin to do the upgrade, Talk to David at Northridge4x4.com He knows his Full Traction stuff, and he's a great guy to deal with.

nicolas-eric thanks...!

now i have a new plan! 3-linkl, SYE and a flat TC plate...all together as a x-mas gift. i hope my family will not kill me when i tell them my wish...
11-22-2007 07:57 PM
4.0l sahara The joint on the 3 link screws in and out.
11-22-2007 07:29 PM
mrbigjeep the 3 link will work with short arms. many people run sye/cv shaft and the 3 link so there has to be a way to adjust the pinion angle with the 3 link.
11-22-2007 07:28 PM
nicolas-eric i just found the Ft exhaust.

will the 3-link work with short arms?
for the SYE i´ll have to buy some upper rear adj. CAs to adjust the pinion angle.
can i install theFT 3-link kit instead of the CAs? that will cost 300$ more but i´m sure that it will give me a great ride.
actually i hate the left-right shaking of the rear on bigger bumps. i think without the trackbar this will be gone.
11-22-2007 07:18 PM
mrbigjeep www.4x4xplor.com did the FT long arm lift with the 3link rear...so if you read their write up it will tell you if it really is fully bolt on...

if the arms hit the exhaust then you will have to modify it...lots of times its required...but usually when i read about that its because of long arms...not sure about with a triangulated rear.

when i was looking at a bolt on cradle and triangulated uppers for my jeep i did some research and PM'd several people with the triangulated rear and they all loved the way it performed off road...one said it gave slightly more body roll but no biggie.

quadratec also says that its fully bolt on...with exhaust modification required...FT does make an exhaust system made to work with their 3 link though.
11-22-2007 07:13 PM
nicolas-eric the 4wd.com website says that it´s a fully bolt on kit without welding or drilling. is this true? do i really need a modified exhaust for this 3-link kit?
do you have a link to your tnt customs kit?

how is the difference to the stock upper control arms and the rear trackbar?

11-22-2007 06:49 PM
silvergoat I have the TnTcustoms three link which is similiar and I love the ride and the way it performs offroad.
