TCI 3-Link Rear

Do you think that this set-up is worth the cost. My 64 SS is daily driven rain or shine and I love to drive hard on windy roads. It is never tracked, would this be over kill? Should I just go with some multi-leafs? I like the idea of being able to run 305mm tires without a ton of work.

How much $ do you want to spend?

Are you changing the front suspension too?

Hope you are planning on running a Ford 9" rearend, get your front suspension dialed and consider trying CBR's new triangulated four link to complement their front suspension. PM me for pricing

Yes and no. With the right set up they can both. The DSE kit has parallel 4 link (like a drag set up)with panhard bar, it handles great.
CBR's has a "triangulated" four link. I've seen the kit on Chuck Jr's car. It's made to take a beating, and lot cheaper than DSE.

look how the bracketry for the torque arm hooks up, ( nine inch only) also read about all the upgrades TCI offers. the triangulated four link is a great choice for road racing, CBR's system includes single adjustable coil overs and sway bar as standard equipment
