I no I'm about to receive a lot of hate for asking this but is anyone here running a 2 link on their truck? If so post some pics up ... For the haters I'll save u some time I understand a 3/4/5/6 link is far better thanks

a 2 link would basically be ladder bars. lots of drag cars use ladder bars, even some off road stuff. Problem is pinion angle. You need the 2 link to pivot at the exact same spot as your drive shaft to keep everything lined up as the suspension moves

"Haters".....ugh

Just curious. If you understand that anything other than a 2 link is far superior, then why are you still considering doing one?

Because I've just always had one it's not a race car so I don't see the need in putting a 4 link on it

I'm not going to beat the dead horse about which suspension is best. I think we all know, but 2-link systems work and done right, is good for a cruiser and they can handle a fair amount of power.

I'd probably look at a 67-72 chevy truck with the trailing arm set up. The 67-72 long bed was 127" wheelbase and the CC Colorado has a 126" wheelbase. Not sure if the trailing arms are the same in all versions (I believe they are), but see if you can grab a full set up at the junk yard for mock up. To help eliminate the pinion angle issue (if you aren't already set up like this) look at a 2-piece driveshaft (with carrier bearing). I know the this helps with some pinion angle isues that get brought up with 2-link setups.

A longer trailing arms will help with the articulation and better for the pinion angle than going shorter.

Good luck and post up some pics if you go this route.
