4 Link on 71-73?
#1
Has anyone done a 4 link rear setup on 71-73 mustang? Is there a place where they sell kits, or is it something you have to make by your self? :-)

Just a question, why would you want a 4 link? they suck, thats why everyone with a 4 link rear (foxbody's till 04) want to get rid of theres and put a watts link or 3 link.

1972 Satin Black Coupe, turns better than average, goes vroom with 303 RWHP.

Ben from the Netherlands built a 4 link system for his coupe. As far as I know there is not a 4 link kit for our cars. I understand the 69-70 kits can be modified to work. Designing a 4 link from scratch would take a considerable investment in time and talent to make it work up to it's capabilities. Calculating anti-squat and roll center based on your suspension attachment points could be a challenge.

Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

Have you considered looking at the rear suspension of a '94-'98 mustang? The dimensions aren't identical but may work.

1971.........1995
-------------------
Length. 193.8".......181.5"
Width. 74.1".........71.8"
Height 50.1".........52.9"
Wheel base 109"...........101.3"

As other have said not really sure the expense & effort is really worth it..I'd go with this instead

I'm sure Shaun at SOT could make any required changes or guide you for install into our cars..
Or just a simple watts link...SOT has those too.

I just thought that 4 link was a good thing to do, I'm a little green on this area.. Actually I was looking at the 3 link from street or track yesterday, it looks like a great option.. Maybe it can be modified to fit in, I think I will ask Shaun about it.. Thanks for all your help.. :-)

My idea was just to move the leaf springs away for more wheel space, I was told that if I mounted the 4 link, then I could get a 12" weidth wheel in back.. :-)

Your not getting a 12" wheel width back there with out installing new or widening the inner wheel house notching the rear frame rails..shortening the rear axle
