      Steve, our rear 4-link kits are made to be adaptable to a wide range of frames. We put the installation sheets on the website so you can check for possible “ambushes” before you buy the kit.

      If you have an 8.8 rear end that does not have the tabs on the carrier for the upper bars, use our standard triangulated rear kit, #(WS)318500.

      Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.

    I have a 1946 chevy truck that I’m going to start rebuilding this summer, I want to keep the truck looking stock but I want the truck drive and handle better than stock. I will be ordering a Mustang II kit for the front suspension and I was looking at the Four Link Kit Rear, 8.8 Ford or GM, part # 318588. I was looking for a set of instrucions to review before ordering, but I was unable to find them on the website. Are the instructions available or only when a kit is purchased?

    Hi DW,
    How long are the upper bars in the triangulated 4-link kit for GM/Ford8.8 rearends? I think I need them about 23 inches.

      Matt, we give bar measurements from the center of the urethane bushing tube to the threaded end of the bar. The lower bars in the 8.8 kit are 23-1/8″ long. The upper bars are shipped as threaded tubes, 22-1/2″ long, that get cut to length. The “V”-shaped bracket that welds to the end of that tube adds about 2-1/2″ to its length. The adjuster is about 1-3/4″ from the center of the urethane bushing tube to the tube side of the jam nut with a couple of threads showing on the tube side of the jam nut.

        Paul,
        Is it possible to get longer lower bars so I locate the bracket in the same spot as the reinforced part of the frame where the leaf spring hangers were mounted? If so, I will definitely be pulling the trigger on this kit. Thanks!

          Matt, this is easy: just tell us the distance from the center of the rear axle to the hanger hole. We will work out the bar length, taking into account the axle bracket and the adjuster. (We dimension bars from the urethane bushing center to the threaded end.) Cost-wise, we credit the standard bars and invoice the special ones.
